EXOS Aerospace has suborbital research rockets for launching micro-satellites and eventually progressing to autonomous spaceflight. John Quinn of EXOS presented. EXOS Aerospace is developing the SARGE family for its suborbital vehicles. Engines up to 5,000-lbf nominal thrust can be tested on a static test skid at the hangar complex.
On 14 February 2018, the Federal Aviation Administration issued Exos Aerospace a Reusable Vehicle Mission Launch License. On August 25th 2018 Exos flew a successful Pathfinder Mission proving SARGE as a Reusable Launch Vehicle.
On March 2, 2019 EXOS successfully flew again.
The team at EXOS came from the Armadillo Aerospace X-Prize Lunar Lander group.
They built and tested three engine designs in 90 days to develop the current flight hardware that they are using in SARGE.
They assemble the rocket the day of the launch.
The can move everything for launch with two semi-trucks.
They can launch 45-50 EDU_payloads in each launch. They lower the cost to enable student science projects to create cubesats for less than the cost of Football team jerseys.
They use parachutes to recover the payload.
They spend as little as $50-5000 to prep a vehicle for a relaunch.
Access to your data in real time
You can access your experimental data during the actual launch through our live streaming data option approximately 90 seconds after the launch. Their LSDO (Live Stream Data Option) can even support live interaction with your experiment during its zero G experience.
Access to your payload in minutes
EXOS has a state-of-the-art retrieval system allows you to access your payload in minutes because they bring the rocket back to the launch point.
Save Time and Money
They can save you time and money on Research & Development expense for International Space Station prep, or preparation for any other flight. When you use EXOS to fly your micro G pretest or validation experiment, you save time. Your waiting period for a payload is much shorter, and the cost is greatly reduced.
They provide an alternative to having to launch into a multi-year / multi-million dollar development cycle to get your experiment on to the International Space Station (ISS), or any other platform, only to see it fail. Why not test it first for a fraction of the cost.
Help your University or other educational institution afford a project and get it done the same school year
EXOS Aerospace Systems & Technologies, Inc., can help universities and other educational institutions (High Schools, even Elementary Schools) access and navigate the complex world of federal, state and industry grant programs in the areas of biomedical and pharmaceutical research, fluid and fundamental physics, material science, aerospace engineering, space hardware or any other field you can come up with.
