Raptor Aerospace is the only commercial enterprise in England to have designed, built, launched and recovered its own Suborbital launch vehicles. Our initial fleet is comprised of our Kestrel Series rockets which have the ability to take payloads of up to 2kg to altitudes of up to 50km. We are currently developing higher performance vehicles that will take up to 16kg of payload to beyond 100km.
Our goal is to provide research and testing facilities in an extended microgravity environment to a wide range of customers including academic institutions, corporates and government funded agencies. We can offer shorter lead times to launch, lower costs per kg of payload and flexibility in terms of launch location. The space race is on and we are selling spades to the gold diggers.
Although we provide a fully integrated service to customers we divide our operational activities into three segments: Space Access, Payload Services and Consultancy.
