Rocket Factory Augsburg (RFA) was founded in 2018 with the vision of providing frequent and low-cost access to space to better understand and protect our Earth. Therefore RFA is developing a launcher that can deliver payloads of up to 1,350 kg into low Earth orbits at highly competitive prices.
The RFA ONE launch vehicle combines three key competitive advantages: flexible and precise last-mile delivery through the orbital stage and highly competitive pricing, enabled by a cost-effective architecture with industrial automation and modified COTS. This is complemented by the EU´s first staged combustion engine that releases fewer emissions while enabling a 30% higher payload capacity.
RFA consists of an international team of over 180 space enthusiasts with a proven track record in launch vehicles.
