PAYLOAD BAY

The payload bay is 1.2 m in diameter and 2.5 m in length, providing a large volume available to accommodate the satellite(s).

ENGINE

This engine provides a nominal thrust of 30 kN with the ability to throttle down for precise orbit insertion. To be compliant with mission requirement and space debris policy, the engine can be reignited multiple times. It is equipped with a bell-shaped nozzle adapted to vacuum conditions.

ENGINE

Each engine provides a nominal thrust of 30 kN and peaks to 40 kN at lift-off. Combustion from HTPB/LOx propellants do not produce toxic fumes. The fumes are harmless for the inhabitants and wildlife surrounding the launching area. This booster stage engine is equipped with an aerospike nozzle to benefit from highest propulsive efficiency during ascent and atmosphere pressure variation.

OB1-MK1

Upper Stage

The upper stage propel the payload to the targeted orbit. It is powered by a single engine. The upper stage is designed to be capable of delivering multiple satellites on different orbits and it deorbits itself after mission completion.

BOOSTER

The booster propels the upper stage and its payload to the edge of space. It is powered by a cluster of 7 engines each of them capable of 30 kN of nominal thrust. The booster is designed to modulate its thrust to reduce the intensity of the maximum aerodynamic pressure. After being jettisoned the booster stage dives back to Earth.
