Reaching space takes more than a launch vehicle. From ground stations to software, ground crews, supply chain, regulatory compliance and more, the complexities of space logistics have resulted in dependence upon a very limited number of expensive and inflexible launch providers.
The true bottleneck to democratization of space is dependence.
Own your access to space through Aevum. Whether you’re looking for insertion accuracy, for rapid constellation deployment, or low-cost launch, the flexible and cost-efficient services of Autonomous Launch help you build out your infrastructure in low Earth orbit (LEO).
Consideration of the launch vehicle, ground operations, mission data, and mission management as a single product is essential for operationally relevant launch capability for elite space operations. The Aether Transport System powers Autonomous Launch to provide space operators with comprehensive space logistics services for accurate, express delivery of payloads to any low earth orbit destinations.
The elements of Autonomous Launch were engineered from the ground up as the ultimate launch system for lightweight payloads with reconfigurability, modularity with standard interfaces, interoperability with existing ground infrastructure, and responsiveness with reliability at its core.
In addition to seamless integration of aerospace hardware and operations, intelligent, modular software interweaves throughout the launch system down to the smallest control circuitry. The result is a no-compromise paradigm for space access that's configurable in every way. Invented by Aevum in the USA.
