Exolaunch signed a wide-ranging MOU with Rocket Factory Augsburg AG (RFA). The agreement is expected to provide end-to-end launch services for small satellites, with Exolaunch procuring launch capacities from RFA.
According to a report by Space Daily, Jeanne Medvedeva, Commercial Director at Exolaunch said that Exolaunch and Rocket Factory share a common mission that places the customer at the center of every launch service experience. The agreement between their companies not only expands access to commercial space opportunities, but also reinforces Germany’s leadership position in the space industry in Europe and beyond.
Dr. Stefan Brieschenk, Chief Operations Officer at RFA said that RFA is looking forward to launching the first RFA One vehicle, using separation and payload deployment systems supplied by Exolaunch. They are optimistic that this partnership will generate a win-win situation for all parties involved, in particular their customers. He believes that this marks the beginning of a new era, where the space domain is transformed into a commercial market in Europe.
Jorn Spurmann, Chief Commercial Officer at RFA, added that he is excited about joint missions together with Exolaunch. They lead the market in their target segment and share the same spirit: providing first-class launch services at most affordable prices and outstanding quality, in-time without delays.
