Trusted Government Launch Partner

Spaceflight has been a trusted launch provider for the U.S. Government for more than a decade, executing more than 55 missions. (See below for some of our favorite USG missions.)

Our large portfolio of launch vehicles and years of integration experience provide the most launch options, including rideshare to GEO and Cislunar, making Spaceflight the choice for the most important and sensitive missions.

OTVs Extend Rideshare Capabilities​

Beyond rideshare services anywhere in cislunar space, Spaceflight also enables a wide variety of in-space transportation and services with its next-gen Sherpa orbital transfer vehicles (OTVs).

The OTVs leverage the same modular structure for increased flexibility, rapid time to flight, and can serve as a hosted payload platform. They’re also ideal for on-orbit servicing uses including space situational awareness, debris mitigation, spacecraft life extension and more.​

State-of-the-Art Integration Facility

A highlight for our customers, Spaceflight’s facility near Seattle WA US features a state-of-the-art manufacturing capacity of 14,000 square feet, including a 2,000 square foot cleanroom. An ISO-7 level certified facility, the cleanroom is large and flexible, with the capacity to process five+ Sherpa OTVs at once with anywhere from 4–20 satellites assigned per Sherpa.
