Green, Low-Cost, On-Demand Design-Build-Launch Services for Nanosatellite Operators
Developing technologies to enable a complete end-to-end solution for reliable commercial access to space.
Revolutionizing Access To Space
Aphelion Aerospace is a nanosatellite systems and service company on a mission to operate the first dedicated CubeSat-class reusable launch system that allows for regular, scheduled orbital access at an unprecedented rate and cost. We are developing technologies to enable a complete end-to-end solution for reliable commercial access to space. We provide launch services with our Aphelion Aerospace vehicle as well as CubeSat systems sales and mission integration services.
We aim to miniaturize and mass-produce launch vehicle technology to revolutionize access to space. Our objectives are as follows:
- To develop and operate a low cost, scalable nanosatellite launch vehicle
- To provide a regular, scheduled launch service, with ticket-like manifestation
- To create a complete, customizable, turnkey nanosatellite solution with spacecraft components, software, and a unified API
- To stay at the forefront of spacecraft miniaturization by constantly initiating experimental programs to develop the technology of tomorrow
The Next Step in Green Propulsion
Revolutionary “green” non-toxic, non-cryogenic propellant. Up to this point, we have been reliant on expensive, highly toxic hypergolic and cryogenic chemicals. At Aphelion, we have designed our propulsion system to use propellants that are non-toxic and non-cryogenic, safe for the environment, and easy to handle. This dramatically reduces material, labor, and logistics costs as well as providing an industry solution for a cleaner and safer planet.
Aphelion Aerospace was founded in early 2019 by a group of experienced aerospace engineers.
