A dedicated launch tailored to your mission.
You're in control - choose your orbit, your launch schedule, and your launch site.
Electron is designed for a nominal payload of 150 kg to a 500 km sun-synchronous orbit.
Rocket Lab is able to tailor the vehicle to specific mission requirements including a range of sun-synchronous altitudes in circular or elliptical orbits at inclinations between 39 and 98 degrees.
Electron's payload fairing is designed to decouple payload integration from the main assembly. Rocket Lab's standard process is to integrate payloads at the launch site in a traditional manner.
However, with the Rocket Lab "Plug-In Payload" module, the customer can choose to manage this process using their own preferred facilities and personnel. Environmentally controlled or sealed payload modules are transported back to Rocket Lab where integration with the Electron vehicle can occur in a matter of hours.
Rocket Lab's novel approach eliminates the risk of cascading delays, and enables customers to have standby payloads ready to go.
