Reusable launch vehicle for small payloads

Industry: Space

Country: Spain


Concentration on relatively few launch vehicles increases uncertainty in the launch schedule for small satellite operators and limits near-term growth.

The opportunity to test  in suborbital space is significant for the developers of space, biomedical and pharmaceutical technologies, enabling them to advance the technology maturity or achieve space demonstration and qualification/certification, which otherwise will take more time or even will be impossible.

PLD proposes revolutionary reusable rockets, to be used as micro-launchers and suborbital launch vehicles. The development of the micro-launcher foresees the demonstration of a smaller scale reusable rocket for commercial suborbital flights making, for the first time ever, small payloads will fly to Space as primary payload and at an affordable price.
