Shown below is our new family of SMA-2 launch vehicles, which will begin flying in late 2023. The SMA-2 family features highly efficient first and second stage solid rocket motors which use a proprietary fuel developed by Space Mission Architects. Our third stages use a high Isp liquid propellant for finer maneuverability.
The SMA-2 is a family of launch vehicles with payload capacities to LEO from as low as 22 kg. up to 7,803 kg. All SMA-2 rockets, including the smallest (the Micro) are capable of inserting a payload anywhere from low earth orbit to a Mars transfer insertion.
SMA-2’s are designed with simplicity and reliability in mind. Each version of the SMA-2 family is scaled off of the other. Many components are the same for all rockets which provides flexibility and interchangeability on the assembly line.
The solid stage motors can be warehoused indefinitely and then delivered to the launch site within days. The third stage needs only to be fueled at the launch site. All SMA-2’s third stages utilize fuels which are non-cryogenic and therefore do not have to be off-loaded in case of a launch delay. Being hypergolic, the third stage motor can be restarted multiple times as needed for the mission without having to rely on an igniter, thereby adding one more element of reliability.
