The C6 Rocket is easily transportable and can be launched from multiple different sites with ease – bringing the launch to the customer instead of the customer to the launch with full access to all orbits from 0° to 110° inclinations.
C6 Launch has signed a Letter of Intent with the SaxaVord Spaceport in Unst, Scotland, as its preferred location for launching smallsat payloads. The Brazilian Space Agency (Agência Espacial Brasileira; AEB) and Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira, FAB) have also awarded C6 Launch a contract to bring orbital launches to the Alcântara Space Center located on Brazil’s northern coast situated just two degrees south of the equator.
C6 Launch has also identified additional launch sites in Scandinavia, with discussions on-going, in order to extend our launch capability network. This will provide multiple options for suborbital and orbital flights, including backup options to ensure launch availability regardless of weather or scheduling.
Between our launch sites, C6 Launch offers orbits from 0° to 110° inclination.
The primary nominal orbit launching from the SaxaVord Spaceport is a 600 km Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO). Equatorial orbits are also available launching from Alcântara Space Center located on Brazil’s northern coast. C6 Launch can also serve clients looking for polar and inclined orbits, with potential low-inclination orbits as a future offering.
C6 Launch will have a minimum of 24 launches a year beginning in 2022. This frequency can be expanded to accommodate further demand with the use of multiple launch sites. We aim to eliminate existing launch backlogs for smallsat payloads.
