VOLANS

FROM THE OCEAN TO ORBIT

Named after the star constellation representing a flying fish, the VOLANS is designed to rapidly  and reliably deliver your payload from the ocean and into the orbit - when you need it.

THE ULTIMATE SMALL LAUNCHER

FLEXIBLE

Using automated mass production and launching from an ocean platform, ESI will control its cadence and reach all inclinations - at your own schedule

SAFE

With a non-toxic oxidiser and non-explosive solid fuel, the Volans is poised to become a safe, reliable and green launch vehicle to suit your needs

AFFORDABLE

VOLANS uses our unique hybrid propulsion, low cost mass produced composite structures and COTS avionics, to deliver a true  cost-effective, high performance launch option

BUILT FOR SMALLSATS

Designed to meet the needs of the global SmallSat market, Volans Light will deliver over 150kg to SSO and more than 220kg to equatorial LEO when launched from ESI's ocean platform

TRUSTED DELIVERY

With a heritage payload fairing, stage separation devices and low shock, non-pyrotechnic satellite deployment used to assure satellite deployment

PRECISION ORBIT READY

Modular avionics system using flight proven components including high accuracy inertial and GNSS sensors and triple redundant flight processors, reducing risk while improving reliability and orbital insertion accuracy

RAPID PRODUCTION

Made from lightweight carbon fibre composite structures produced by fully automated robotic machines, a Volans vehicle structure can be built in several days versus the months taken to produce traditional metal launch vehicles

SAFE PROPULSION

Each stage is powered by high performance hybrid rocket motors utilising ESIs proprietary HRF-1AL fuel & RAVEN oxidiser delivery system combined with Chilled Nitrous Oxide. Providing high levels of vehicle control & safety
