Suborbital Accelerator

SpinLaunch Suborbital Accelerator, an alternative method for putting 200 kilogram class satellites into low earth orbit.

Spinlaunch is an innovative new space technology company that has created an alternative method for putting 200 kilogram class satellites into low earth orbit.



Unlike traditional fuel-based rockets, SpinLaunch uses a ground-based, electric powered kinetic launch system that delivers a substantially less expensive and environmentally sustainable approach to space access.

Watch team SpinLaunch conduct the first test launch with the newly completed Suborbital Accelerator.

The Suborbital Accelerator is designed to operate from 800 to 5,000 mph and acts primarily as a test-bed for the Orbital Launch System. On October 22nd, 2021, our first launch successfully propelled a test vehicle at supersonic speeds and ended with the recovery of the reusable flight vehicle.

Throughout 2022 the system will conduct regular test flights with a variety of vehicles and launch velocities. The Suborbital System offers testing capabilities to customers and provides long term value as a satellite qualification facility.
