Why Argo?

Why Argo?

Human space exploration is increasing rapidly, requiring low-cost, flexible and reliable space cargo capability. By 2030, experts forecast there will be more than seven commercial space stations in orbit and annual cargo transit is expected to exceed 370 tons.

 

That’s where RFA comes in.

 

Meet Argo: Our low-cost commercial cargo capsule crafted to revolutionize the growing demands of the commercial space sector and redefine space cargo transportation. From LEO resupply missions to microgravity research and development, lunar logistics services and ultimately extending its capabilities to astronaut transportation, Argo is a comprehensive solution for your cargo supply needs.

Features

High Payload Volume

The main stainless steel structure allows for a useable pressurized volume of almost 13 cubic meters both into orbit and on re-entry, making space for large and precious cargo loads.

Atmospheric Re-entry System

Argo’s Inflatable Atmospheric Decelerator (IAD) allows for 4000kg up and down mass and ensures a smooth and safe re-entry, descent and landing by covering the vehicle completely while enabling steering control.

Fenix Engines

Argo is powered by our unique, re-ignitable Fenix engine, using a groundbreaking green nitromethane-based bi-propellant system to ensure maximum mission flexibility, including last-mile deliveries.

Advanced Docking Mechanism

Argo’s advanced Docking and Berthing Adapter (DBA) allows for seamless rendezvous operations with space stations and the reliable execution of re-supply missions.
