GREENVILLE, TX, USA, September 7, 2021 (Exos Aerpspace PR) — As part of a strategic collaboration to meet the fast-growing demand for responsive and economical access to low-Earth-orbit (LEO), 0-G Launch and Exos Aerospace agree to use the innovative Space Jet ™ as a commercial air-launch platform for small orbital rocket deliveries targeting initial launches in Q4 2023.
Exos Aerospace, a U.S. leading developer and operator of reusable Space vehicles, and 0-G Launch, an innovative provider of multi-vehicle air-launch platforms and high-precision microgravity services, today announced that they have signed an agreement for a series of air-launch missions aboard the Space Jet ™ to begin at the end of 2023.
As part of this agreement, Exos Aerospace will book, manage and deploy its customer payloads using their Jaguar rocket systems for delivery of small spacecraft to LEO. This agreement allows Exos Aerospace to offer its customers a next-generation economical and reliable orbital transport system for dedicated missions using the flexibility of the spaceport-independent Space Jet™ air-launch aircraft from up to 40 thousand feet altitude -above any major weather conditions, and over the oceans.
“Our partnership with 0-G launch is an exciting step for Exos Aerospace that will enable us to provide our small satellite customers and the space community at large with game-changing operational reliability, coupled with cost-effective air-launch services not only domestically but also in international markets,” said John Quinn, CEO and Co-Founder of Exos Aerospace.
