    Need Affordable and Reliable Access to Space?

    YOUR MISSION ACCOMPLISHED

ARQ

Launch your satellite or entire constellation from the International Space Station

Introducing the bSpace ARQ, our latest innovation for reaching low-earth-orbit. Designed by a team of experienced spaceflight engineers to deliver unprecedented reliability, the modular launch system enables complete flexibility for sizes up to 27U with a 200U deployment capacity on each launch. That means you can reliably deploy an entire constellation from a single box, or replenish your constellation on a known schedule. ARQ deployments are captured in breathtaking 4k 360 degree virtual reality with video delivered immediately through our onboard high-speed data downlink.

The bSpace team is committed to your mission success and is there to help you through every step of the launch manifest process. We also provide insurance and engineering or consulting expertise when you need it. That’s why we were just named one of the Top 10 NewSpace companies at the professional space network NewSpace People.
