SOLID-FUEL ROCKET

The Boy Launcher has been developed in exclusive cooperation with Yuzhmash — one of the world's top manufacturers of launch vehicles. The rocket is based on existing time proven rocket technologies, combined with state-of-the-art aviation and payload deployment systems. As a result, the Boy Launcher offers up to 200 kg of payload capacity, low failure rates and precise positioning capabilities.
Since solid-fuel rockets can remain in storage for long periods of time without much propellant degradation they don’t need to be fueled prior to start, enabling Orbit Boy’s next day space launches.

MOBILE CLEANROOM
When the microsatellite arrives at our payload processing mobile cleanroom, installed at the customer's local airport, we monitor particle counts, humidity and temperature to ensure that the cleanroom operates at ISO 8 Cleanliness standards. Once the satellite is safe and secure, it's time for integration with the Boy Launcher.


Within 24 hours all launches can be initiated from any airfield that meets landing and take-off requirements of the Orbit Boy carrier plane.
