1. Conventional Rocket-based launch is expensive (>$5000 per kg)
2. Rocket launch cancellations cost satellite companies millions
3. Launch lead times are greater than 1 year
4. Satellite companies do not get launched into their desired orbits
Velontra is building a hypersonic space plane that can takeoff from anywhere in any weather. This horizontal takeoff increases launch reliability and enables customers to directly access any orbit. Our air-breathing propulsion system is up to 6 times more fuel efficient than any rocket, and uses oxygen from the air which creates thousands of pounds of additional payload capacity.

Here are the steps of our tech development path.
1. Propulsion System
2. Supersonic UAV
3. Hypersonic UAV
4. Space Plane for Low Earth Orbit
How It Works
The hypersonic space plane will work by taking off from any runway with a jet propulsion system. Next, it will climb to over 100,000’ and Mach 5. At this point, it will launch a 2nd stage rocket directly into the desired Low Earth Orbit.
Our Ask is for introductions to any company putting anything into orbit. We are pursuing LOI’s and customer discovery.
