Get up to 25% more satellites per launch.
ACE's small volume means you can fit more satellites on every rocket. Launch your constellation with fewer rockets. Save over $50 million per flight for every launch you no longer need.
Get up to 30% more revenue-generating payload.
A satellite contains propulsion and payload. Using ACE means you have more room for additional payload, with a potential for 30% more revenue-generating payload per satellite.
Accelerate your time-to-market by deploying faster.
By deploying with fewer rockets, you can have your complete constellation operational sooner.
Save 50% or more by boosting to GEO from LEO.
GEO launches are infrequent and expensive. Instead, ACE lets you choose to launch on a LEO flight then boost to GEO for half the cost. Because LEO launches are so frequent both your budget and your schedule win.
Choose a VLEO orbit to improve your resolution or data rates.
VLEO orbits are a new option with lots of potential. For telecommunications, VLEO can improve data rates by 10X. For imaging, constellations can double imaging resolution without the expense of a larger aperture.
Easily deploy satellites into orbits with different orbital planes.
ACE has the impulse to spread your satellites into multiple orbital planes from a single launch vehicle.
