Vector Launch, formerly known as Vector Space Systems, is a US company planning to launch orbital and suborbital payloads. Like many other aerospace companies, Vector Launch had a robust history. Established in 2016, the company went bankrupt in 2019 to re-emerge the next year.
Vector Launch plans to carry orbital payloads on two proprietary rockets — Vector-R and Vector-H. Both launchers should have a reusable first stage powered by a cluster of engines and a single-engine second stage. Like many other modern rockets, Vector Launch rockets will use carbon fibre structure and 3D-printed component parts.
The company plans to service both governments and private companies. This page will keep you informed about the latest Vector Launch news and developments.
