LOMITA, Calif. — Advanced Rockets Corporation (ARC) is an engineering pioneer developing a new class of rocket designed for 400+ flights per rocket and $100 per kg into low earth orbit. The design achieves more than 700% gains in efficiency over current technology by taking advantage of ARC’s patents in advanced aerodynamics and air-breathing propulsion solutions.
ARC’s innovative propulsion system combines rocket and hypersonic air-breathing technology into a single engine, massively reducing deadweight. The gains in efficiency this system affords translate into improved rates of utilization, an expanded envelope for safe intact abort, and mission-specific modifications among many other features essential to the goal of reliable and affordable commercial space flight.
