iRocket has a proprietary Afterburning rocket engine that will be key in building a reusable small launch vehicle to cargo 300 kg-1500 kg to orbit for governn1ent and commercial customers. Reusable small launch vehicles will allow for rapid response and increased frequency of launch, which can be scaled up for larger launch vehicles, 10,000kg or larger. With the help of this Phase 1 contract, iRocket will identify the US Air Force custon1ers and their needs and work with them over the course of Phase 1 to produce a plan to integrate the Reusable Small Launch Technology, with the end goal to secure a launch contract. Our ultimate goal is to end the "digital divide" and make space inexpensive and highly accessible to all via a "Priced to Sell" strategy which will provide the lowest price per kg payload in the market and ensure long term viability. on October 9th, 2019 "The Small Rocket Program-Orbital approach affords us the opportunity to seek out new innovations in space launch," Over the coming weeks and months, the Small Launch team will award more contracts to demonstrate innovative and responsive launch solutions" said Col. Robert Bongiovi, SMC's director of Launch Enterprise.
