Small satellites are here.

As satellites have shrunk from the size of a bus to the size of a loaf of bread, the race has begun to build smaller and lower-cost rockets to launch them to orbit.

Launcher is developing the world’s most efficient rocket to deliver small satellites to orbit.

It all starts with developing the highest-performance engine for small rockets.

Launcher E-2 engines are 3D printed in high-performance copper alloy and require less propellant to get to orbit — allowing Launcher to deliver more satellite cargo per rocket and as a result, offer a lower price than our competitors.

How? The world’s largest 3D printed liquid rocket engine.

With our partner AMCM, Launcher designed and manufactured the world’s largest single-part 3D printed liquid rocket engine combustion chamber. Printing in a single piece reduces costs and enables the highest-performance regenerative cooling design.

How? Proven efficiency & tested design.

Operating at 98% efficiency, Launcher’s engine produces a blue exhaust plume, which is unprecedented for kerosene engines — thanks to the use of 3D printed copper alloy and our unique liquid oxygen regenerative cooling.

How? Our team.

Launcher is based in New York and led by Chief Designer Igor Nikishchenko, who has over 30 years of experience with the world’s highest-performance closed cycle staged combustion liquid rocket engines. (More).
