VOLANS is designed to rapidly and reliably deliver your payload from Equatorial Space's oceanic platform into any inclination, right when you need it.
VOLANS will be the world's first hybrid-propelled launch vehicle enabled by our proprietary solid fuel, the HRF-1/HRF-1AL and an innovative oxidizer delivery system, leading to reduction of cost per kilogram significantly compared to existing solutions.
Any inclination - precisely when you need it thanks to our sea launch platform
100% explosive and pyrotechnic free thanks to our high-power hybrid propulsion technology
Simple propulsion, and COTS components to reduce the cost per kilogram to orbit
VOLANS' 1.2 meter diameter payload fairing is among the most spacious in its weight to orbit class, and can be configured for single small-sat or multiple micro and nano-satellite rideshare options.
VOLANS' unique restartable hybrid third stage will enable precise orbital insertion, as well as potential for orbital adjustments for multi-payload deployment.
Any mission, any orbit. VOLANS can deliver.
HRF-1 is a unique solid fuel proprietary to ESS which has undergone more than 9 years of development.
HRF-1 solves the historical challenges of hybrid rocket propulsion, and delivers game changing cost performance levels.
HRF-1 combined with our eRAVEN oxidiser delivery system and cryogenic Nitrous Oxide [cNOX], produces densities comparable to solid propellants with the specific impulse levels of liquid propellants.
