THE ASTRA ADVANTAGE

Icon Calendar

YOUR
SCHEDULE

We designed Launch System 2 specifically to support an increased launch cadence and increase Astra’s annual launch availability – up to one per week.

More frequent launches allow you to deploy and maintain your constellation on your schedule – with a partner as dynamic as your business.

YOUR
ORBITS

We understand the importance of getting right where you want to be in space – without waiting on rideshares and orbital transfer maneuvers.

Dedicated launches accelerate your path to the specific orbit your mission requires and allow you to start providing services sooner.

Economic

BEST-IN-CLASS
ECONOMICS

Astra is focused on providing the lowest possible price-per-dedicated launch and providing the most affordable path to custom orbits.

Take advantage of best-in-class launch economics and spend more capital building spacecraft and developing products.

PAYLOAD FAIRING

Rocket 4’s fairing is designed to support a broad range of missions – from individual ESPA Grande spacecraft deployments to dual ESPA spacecraft deployments and multi-cubesat rideshare missions.

A flight-proven thermal protection system shields spacecraft on their way to orbit prior to fairing separation, which takes place during Rocket 4’s upper stage burn.

BUILDING A GLOBAL SPACEPORT NETWORK

Astra’s launch services are currently available from two U.S. spaceports to a broad range of orbital inclinations.

We plan to provide more access to space from more places on Earth – with additional spaceports coming online in 2024 & beyond.
