What is Vector?
Vector Space Systems serves the micro and nano satellite markets with a responsive launch capability that allows you the micro-sat developer to innovate your space system and not worry about launch. Our launch vehicle, under development for several years, will offer frequent access to space in much the same way airlines offer passenger service to destinations of your choice.
What satellite mass is Vector capable of launching?
Vector-R will launch 50 kg to Low Earth Orbit and Vector-H will launch 100 kg into Low Earth Orbit. We can place your satellites into any inclinations from 28 degrees to Sun Synchronous Orbit.
When is your first launch?
Vector has been launching on sub-orbital development flights for the past several years and has had 31 flights to date. Our first Vector-R Block 0 launch is scheduled for Q4 2017 and commercial flights begin in early 2018 with the Vector-R Block 1 launch vehicles. The Vector-H Block-0 vehicle is slated to launch in Q2 2019 with commercial operations of the Vector-H Block-1 beginning mid 2019.
