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.
