The Future of Spaceflight
The German aerospace startup POLARIS Raumflugzeuge GmbH develops a novel reusable space launch and hypersonic transport system. The Spaceplane Aurora combines aircraft and rocket launcher technologies within a unique design. Aurora offers a game-changing economic viability and provides an enabler technology for routine cheap and safe access to space.
- Superior cost efficiency
- Aircraft-like operation
- Launch on demand
- Unique safety level
- Multiple target markets
- Satellite launch
- Suborbital science & research
- Human spaceflight
- Hypersonic flight
POLARIS pursues an ambitious roadmap, starting with a small-satellite-launch and hypersonic transport system, addressing human suborbital spaceflight in a second step, and ultimately implementing a heavy and fully reusable space launcher for routine low-cost access to space.
The scalability of the concept allows to utilize the same basic design for vehicles in different sizes and for different applications.
