Astraius will base its launch and range operations in the UK at the Prestwick Spaceport near Glasgow Scotland.
The Spaceport will provide all necessary ground-based requirements in a bespoke, state-of-the-art facility containing two payload processing rooms, two launch vehicle integration areas and a modern mission/range control centre.
Our unique satellite launch capability combines proven and innovative technology on tested delivery platforms.
The Astraius launch vehicle is built upon a system successfully used by the US Government for over 40 complex missions and is capable of launching payloads up to 800kg.
We use the highly capable C-17 Globemaster transport aircraft as our ‘air-launch’ platform, operating directly from the Prestwick Spaceport. The C-17 is flown by the Royal Air Force, US Air Force and numerous other nations around the globe, with more than 250 aircraft in service.
Our horizontal launch system safely delivers satellites to all Low Earth Orbit inclinations to include Sun-Synchronous Orbit.
“Commitment to our customers is paramount. Our solutions offer the flexibility that satellite companies need. We deliver affordability with the highest standards of service. We’re looking forward to developing a relationship with you.” Kevin Seymour, CEO
We will begin launching satellites in 2024 for customers from the UK and around the world. We’ll start to expand our global basing footprint in 2025.
