Bremen, Germany, Nov. 16, 2021 – Morpheus Space, the world’s most scalable and efficient propulsion systems supplier enabling autonomous mobility in space, and Rocket Factory Augsburg AG (RFA) Europe’s leading launch service provider, have jointly signed a memorandum of understanding for cooperation. The two companies will work closely together in the field of propulsion technology in the future.
Rocket Factory Augsburg was founded in 2018 with the mission to significantly reduce launch costs in the space industry. The company’s goal is to develop a launch vehicle prototype by the end of 2022 which can launch satellites into low Earth orbits on a weekly basis at unmatched prices. The RFA ONE launch vehicle combines three key competitive advantages: a highly cost-efficient architecture using industrial automation and lowest-possible development costs, precise in-orbit delivery by its orbital stage, and superior propulsion systems using staged-combustion.
Morpheus Space is introducing a fully integrated ecosystem for satellite mobility that enables truly dynamic satellite constellations, the future of the New Space economy; a fusion between cutting edge electric propulsion and artificial intelligence. Its solution package enables satellite service providers to operate entire constellations as one entity by utilizing the world’s smallest and most efficient space qualified (TRL-9) propulsion system servicing satellites.
