We build spaceports.

Demand for launch is increasing, and the supply of launch sites is not enough.

We are developing a worldwide network of launch and reentry sites to serve the growing commercial space transportation industry.

2. Launch barge moves out to sea 

3. Rocket is launched at sea

4. Launch barge returns to port
