Your mission. As a Service.
Affordable and reliable access to space infrastructure.
Space Made Simple.

Fly with us

Space missions today remain complex, costly, and prone to delay.
Loft Orbital is changing that.

We fly your payload or technology as a service, charging an annual fee in a pay-for-performance model. We manage all aspects of the mission needed to get your payload to orbit and support it once there.
Space should be simple.

  • Satellite
  • Licensing & Regulation
  • Launch
  • Ground Segment
  • Financing & Insurance
On our regularly-scheduled satellite missions

Gone are the days of customized, long-lead-time spacecraft development.

Our satellites launch on a regular schedule of at least once per quarter.
Through known timelines, pre-booked launches, and our proprietary technology to simplify integration, rapid schedules to space become a reality.

Mission Schedule
  • Q3 2019
  • Q4 2019
  • Q1 2020
  • Q2 2020
  • Quarterly Missions
For a fraction of the usual cost.

No compromise in mission performance.

We leverage high-performance, high-reliability satellite platforms with extensive flight heritage.
Our technology enables multiple-payload missions without constraining individual performance, design, or operations.

All Payloads Welcome

Our interface technology, the Payload Hub, can accommodate all payload and mission types, and remains satellite bus agnostic.

The Payload Hub decouples satellite and payload development, eliminating expensive and time-consuming non-recurring engineering.

Flying on a Loft Orbital satellite mission, you pay only for the resources your payload requires, without compromises in mission performance or mission assurance.

Space Made Simple

We believe organizations should be able to avoid the complexity, risk, and cost of procuring and owning their own spacecraft.

An annual subscription covers it all: satellite bus, integration and test, launch, ground segment, satellite operations, licensing, and insurance. Our end-to-end mission service addresses everything needed to get your mission to orbit and support it once there.

With minimal pre-launch costs, fly with us and make space simple.
