Pegasus

Building on its 20 consecutive years of mission success, the Pegasus rocket will provide Stratolaunch customers with unparalleled reliability.

Developed by Orbital Sciences Corporation (now part of Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems), the air-launched rocket consists of three solid propellant stages plus an optional monopropellant stage. It features a modular payload adapter/dispenser to accommodate a wide variety of payload weights and sizes up to 1,000 lbs (454 kg).

And for even more flexibility, the Stratolaunch aircraft can hold up to three Pegasus rockets, which can each deliver payloads to different orbits and inclinations — making Stratolaunch your “one-stop-shop” for small satellite constellation deployment.
