Spaceport America, the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport and Exos Aerospace Systems & Technologies, Inc., a leading developer of reusable space launch vehicles based in Greenville, Texas, announce “another successful test flight.” Here is a statement from Spaceport America:
Exos completed the Pathfinder Launch on August 25th 2018 from Spaceport America. It was the first step in validating the SARGE SRLV that was flown and recovered for reuse. Exos Aerospace gathered critical flight data that enabled advancing the design and setting them up for continued reuse of their SARGE vehicle.
The “Mission 1” test flight of the SARGE reusable system carried commercial payloads flown under the programs listed below. The successful launch further solidified the company’s plan to use this technology as the design basis of their Jaguar orbital launch vehicle with reusable first stage capable of carrying 100kg to Low Earth Orbit (200-400km).
