Designed and built in the United States by Relativity, Terran 1 is a truly next generation launch vehicle designed for the future of constellation deployment and resupply. Its groundbreaking and unique architecture is designed to accommodate the evolving needs of satellite customers, while providing the most agile and affordable launch service on the market.
As the first aerospace factory to use data-driven learning to improve every aspect of rocket manufacturing, Stargate allows us to reduce part count 100x by printing across Terran 1’s structure and engines, significantly reducing touch points and lead times, greatly simplifying the supply chain, and increasing overall system reliability.
Terran 1 is among the most cost-effective launchers in the world. Our technology allows streamlined launch procurement, rapid iteration, and greater flexibility to generate customized mission specific solutions.
Propellants of the future: oxygen + methane.
Enhanced mission reliability by reducing part count in engine combustion chambers, igniters, turbopumps, reaction control thrusters, and vehicle pressurization systems. These propellants are also the easiest to eventually make on Mars.
Aeon has completed over 200 test fires.
An evolvable engine architecture coupled with 3D printing of every component unlocks agility from development through operation.
Our process reduces the number of component interfaces, making streamlined automation of engine production possible.
Relativity operates multiple production, test, and launch sites across the United States, enabling shorter lead times to launch, and greater launch flexibility for commercial and government customers needing access to space.
Encompassing four buildings with 20,000 sq. ft. of office space and production facilities, Relativity’s Los Angeles headquarters is home to a team of 100. Our HQ houses design, engineering, and production of our Terran 1 launch vehicle and our Stargate printers. We are expanding our LA HQ to 200,000 sq. ft. to support our accelerating growth.
Relativity is the first and only venture-backed company with a Right of Entry directly with the U.S. Air Force at historic Launch Complex 16.
Complete development, qualification, and acceptance testing of Terran and Aeon will occur at the E4 Test Complex. Relativity is investing capital to build on the existing site with a permanent team leading test operations.
Since 2016, we conducted development tests of our 3D printed Aeon engine at the E3 Engine Testing Facility.
Relativity secured a 20-year exclusive use agreement for a 220,000 sq. ft. factory building at NASA Stennis Space Center to house one of our Stargate factories and for faster development of our Terran 1 launch vehicle. With production and testing facilities on one site, Relativity can offer greater flexibility to our customers.
