RAW MATERIAL
TO FLIGHT

IN LESS THAN 60 DAYS

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.

Part Count Reduction

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.

MAX PAYLOAD:
1,250 KG TO 185 KM LEO
NOMINAL PAYLOAD:
900 KG TO 500 KM SSO
HIGH ALTITUDE PAYLOAD:
700 KG TO 1200 KM SSO

SPACE LAUNCH
WITHIN REACH

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.

DEDICATED MISSION:  $10M

DEDICATED SSO:  $11,000/kg

DEDICATED LEO:  $8,000/kg

RIDESHARE:  DEDICATED +15%

DESIGNED FOR
AUTOMATION

AEON 1 & AEON VAC ENGINES

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.

 
 
 

Quicker production
Faster iteration

An evolvable engine architecture coupled with 3D printing of every component unlocks agility from development through operation.

Lead Time (Days)

 

Fewer ENGINE
components 

Our process reduces the number of component interfaces, making streamlined automation of engine production possible.

HQ AND FACTORY

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA

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.

 
 

LAUNCH COMPLEX 16

CAPE CANAVERAL, FLORIDA

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.

  • Launch Pad, Propellant Farms and Gas Storage
  • Integration Hangar & Logistics Area
  • Payload Processing Facility (PPF)
  • Launch Control Center (LCC)
 
 

E4 TEST FACILITY

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, MISSISSIPPI

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.

  • 25 acre test complex including 15,000 ft2 of specialized test infrastructure
  • Four large test cells rated for both vehicles and engines
  • Exclusive 20 year agreement - Stennis' first ever CSLA
 
 

E3 Engine Testing Facility

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, MISSISSIPPI

Since 2016, we conducted development tests of our 3D printed Aeon engine at the E3 Engine Testing Facility.

  • Up to 25,000 lbs of thrust engine stand
  • Over 200 hotfires across 14 engine iterations
 
 

STENNIS FACTORY

STENNIS SPACE CENTER, MISSISSIPPI

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.

  • 80-foot high bay
  • 50-ton overhead crane
  • Existing industrial infrastructure
  • 2 miles from Relativity's test sites
