SAMPLE MISSION PROFILE:
Launcher Rocket-1 will launch from an FAA-licensed orbital launch site in the United States, most likely NASA’s Kennedy Space Center or Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, or the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island in Virginia.
In under six minutes, Launcher Rocket-1 will fly to an altitude above 200 km (124 miles) and accelerate our customer’s satellite to a speed greater than 26,500 km/h (16,466 mph) before releasing the satellite in the desired orbit and completing the mission.
