Flight profile


All engineering systems within the launch site are of a modular design. Module sizes do not exceed a standard 40 ft ISO container. Rapid, erectable methods of construction enable launch vehicle and spacecraft assembly and testing, whereby the launch pad for the orbital launch vehicle is a sectional and portable unit.

This version of the launch site allows:
  • Launch from interchangeable locations
  • Launch services to be provided without impacting the spaceport infrastructure
  • Launch services to be provided involving the spaceport infrastructure
  • Rapid set-up and pack-down of a site

The payload module within the orbital launch vehicle hosts the payload. In order to meet the requirements of the customer’s payload during installation, maintenance, and operation, Skyrora utilise an encapsulated payload module whereby assembly is achieved as a standalone to the launch vehicle. The payload module consists of the payload fairing and adapter, dispenser (if required), and other systems to ensure safe operation during pre-launch processes and flight.

The payload fairing casing consists of two halves composed of a 3-layer composite shell with a honeycomb filler. Bearing layers are made of a carbon-fiber composite. When the rocket reaches the required altitude, the halves of the payload fairing are released with the help of push-rod springs installed on the payload fairing casing.
