Advanced, lightweight hardware
with 100% mission success
In 2021 Rocket Lab acquired Planetary Systems Corporation which has designed, built, and delivered separation systems for more than 20 years with a 100% success rate - no product has ever failed to operate in flight. With the scale and resources of Rocket Lab behind the team, we are now making separation systems available globally at scale.
Since 1998, our separation systems have enabled customers to lower their mission costs and streamline payload integration time from days to just minutes.
Our Advanced Lightband is the next generation in space vehicle separation systems. Increasing performance and decreasing lead time.
Our fully-encapsulated Canisterized Satellite Dispensers (CSD) that provides a reliable and cost-effective housing for CubeSat payloads, that minimizes damage risk and eliminates the necessity for heavy or complicated interface structures between satellite and launch vehicle.
Our Engineering Philosophy
20+ years of flight heritage
*Launch vehicle failed. We count this event as a unit built but not a mission success.
