Relativity signed a Launch Services Agreement (LSA) with Spaceflight. Under the LSA, Spaceflight will manifest missions to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) on Relativity’s Terran 1 rocket, the world’s first and only entirely 3D-printed rocket.

The LSA aims to position Relativity as a viable launch option for a large segment of the small satellite, microsat, and cubesat launch market. By combining Spaceflight’s rideshare launch capabilities and Relativity’s 3D printing technology platform, the companies aim to provide greater access, schedule flexibility, reliability, and offer one of the lowest launch options available. Relativity’s Terran 1 launcher will also serve small Medium Earth Orbit (MEO) and Geostationary Transfer Orbit (GTO) missions for small satellites.

“With Spaceflight’s leadership in rideshare launch solutions, state-of-the-art integration infrastructure, and experience, we are excited to work together to offer industry-defining lead time, flexibility, and cost for smallsats and cubesats and meaningfully expand the total launch capacity available through Spaceflight’s offering,” said Tim Ellis, CEO and cofounder of Relativity. “We look forward to building the space economy together and supporting disruptive commercial and government payload missions.”
