PROJECT VULCAN

With Project Vulcan, Deimos-One will launch reusable rockets carrying micro-payloads from altitudes of 100,000 feet. The fully autonomous system will require zero fixed-ground infrastructure and provide rapid launch frequency for sounding rockets, LEO satellites, and military installations at a low cost to any low earth orbit.

VULCAN

Our reusable launch vehicle was designed to carry micro-payloads into space for distributed spacecraft missions – and even human spaceflight.

REUSABLE LAUNCH VEHICLE

The customer’s satellite is loaded onto the Vulcan launch vehicle. Once the balloon with the payload reaches 100,000 feet, the staging rocket separates and blasts off into orbit. All parts are recovered and reused for future missions.

Step 1

A first-stage balloon carries the launch vehicle to a designated altitude of roughly 100,000 feet (30 km / 19 mi).

Step 2

Once the craft reaches target altitude it aligns itself and then engages the rocket engine to fire.

Step 3

The launch vehicle then exits the atmosphere at a planned trajectory and inserts the payload into orbit.

VULCAN-ONE REDEFINING WHAT'S POSSIBLE

MISSION 89P13

The goal of Mission 89P13 (The Vulcan Project) is to build a future where access to space is frequent, safe, reliable, and affordable for everyone. Vulcan 1 is one of the most cost-effective launchers in the world – designed to support a frequent, high-volume launch capacity, Vulcan offers greater flexibility to launch and deploy mission specific payloads into orbit at a low cost. 

Payloads

We fly things to the edge of space: from testing LEO satellites, telescopes, antennas, and experiments, to advertising consumer products.

Mission

To put small satellites into orbit for scientific, security, commercial, or marketing purposes using the Vulcan launch vehicle.

Clients

Our efficient, reusable sounding rockets are used by governments, institutions, and companies to send payloads into space at a low cost.

LOW COST LAUNCHES 

Our newly developed, autonomous, reusuable rocket system is ignited above 99% of the atmosphere, resulting in a simplified, cost-effective launch process with greater launch volume capacity.

Safe Comfortable Efficient American

In 2021, Deimos-One will launch a new space capsule into outer space, powering our ability to fly reusable payloads and humans into space using American made vehicles. Eventually, our reusable suborbital rocket system will take astronauts and research payloads past the Kármán line into Earth orbit and beyond, offering every human on our planet the experience of a lifetime.
