SpaceLoft XL Launch Vehicle

We provide access to the space environment on board our in-house developed and proven launch platform called the SpaceLoft. The SpaceLoft flights have demonstrated microgravity times in excess of 4 minutes for our standard mission carrying 36 kg of payload and is capable of achieving 6.5 minutes of zero gravity time for smaller sized payloads. The SpaceLoft program can provide a wide range of payload integration services including, power options, command functions, and environmental testing to meet your specific payload mission requirements.
