VOLANS is a concept of a modular and scalable launch vehicle family powered by our hybrid rocket propulsion.

Sized based on the performance of the H700 and H300 engines,  VOLANS family has a nominal capacity between 60 to 500 kg to LEO.

The performance of VOLANS have been evaluated and optimised by Equatorial Space's  flight dynamics software suite developed in-house.

VOLANS furthermore features an innovative recovery system involving a set of autorotating blades to deliver reusability of key components.
