The announcement of Gilmour Space Technologies partnership with the German rideshare company Exolaunch has opened a new page in the history of the Australian space sector.

The choice of vehicle for mutual operations fell on Eris, the launcher developed by Gilmour Space with unique hybrid technologies.
Exolaunch and Gilmour Space Technologies Partnership Mutual Benefits
This collaboration is definitely a win-win. Gilmour can now harness unmatched technologies in in-space transportation and deployment developed by Exolaunch. They also get access to Reliant, an eco-friendly vehicle that is designed for last-mile smallsat delivery and eliminating space debris. It will contribute to Eris’s mission, expanding it significantly. Exolaunch, in turn, benefits from the Gilmour Space Technologies partnership by accessing the capabilities of Eris and Australia-based launch pads.
