OUR LAUNCH PARTNERS
Our goal is to reshape how the space industry works, starting with how we get there. By offering smaller more frequent launches, Astra will enable a wave of innovation in low Earth orbit and improve life on our planet through greater connectivity and more regular observation. Industry giants and a wave of new startups are racing to create trillions of dollars of new economic activity in space. Last year alone, nearly $6 billion was invested into space companies, many of which intend to disrupt the industry. What these innovators need are more flights taking their satellites precisely where they need to go.
Space Perspective is a human space flight company committed to fundamentally changing people’s view and perception of Earth. Using a high-performance balloon and pressurized capsule technology that gently travels to and from the edge of space over a six-hour period, the spacecraft offers opportunities for groundbreaking research and life-changing travel experiences for world explorers. Space Perspective is led by a team of professionals that have developed or operated all human balloon flights to the stratosphere in the last 50 years.
TiSPACE designs innovative hybrid rocket technology to provide cost-effective launch services to the growing demand of launching satellite to low earth orbits. TiSPACE technology is 100% designed and precision engineered in Taiwan.
PSCA has supported numerous government missions to deploy operational satellites, conduct suborbital research & development launches, and conduct cutting-edge missile defense tests.
AAC is collaborating with the FAA and the University of Alaska’s Geophysical Institute to add an FAA commercial spaceport license to the Poker Flat Research Range (PFRR. This will allow commercial ventures to launch from this unique facility which has been generally reserved for NASA-funded scientific missions. PFRR is the largest land-based rocket research range in the world and the only high-latitude rocket range in the United States.
Alaska Aerospace Corporation (AAC) and Camden County, Georgia have entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work cooperatively on establishing common operating environments for launch vehicle operators who wish to reach both polar and equatorial orbits. By working together, AAC and Camden County can better support launch vehicle operator needs and the emerging commercial space launch market, while strengthening both endeavors.
