We Make Space Simple.
Loft Orbital operates microsatellites and flies customer payloads, as a service.
Space Made Simple.
Your mission, flown on our satellite
A new way to access space
Fly with us

Today, access to space requires custom engineering driving high costs, unpredictable schedule delays, and increased risk.

Loft Orbital is changing that.

Our groundbreaking Payload Hub technology is a universal payload adapter that can fly any payload on a standard satellite bus. By unlocking standardization, Loft Orbital delivers unparalleled speed-to-space and reliability.

Our end-to-end service includes:

  • Satellite
  • Licensing & Regulation
  • Launch
  • Ground Segment
  • Financing & Insurance
Space Made Simple, without compromises.

Loft Orbital offers an end-to-end service that delivers your mission to orbit on a standard microsatellite bus.

Our high-performance spacecraft have extensive flight heritage and can accommodate the most demanding smallsat missions. We make space simple by handling all elements of the mission so our customers can focus on their mission, their data, rather than the complexity to get there.

In our disruptive business model, we push most of our payments to post launch, under a pay-for-performance service-level agreement. If we don’t perform, you don’t pay.

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, and unlocking reliability and never before seen speed to orbit .

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