NEW YORK (Launcher PR) — We are honored to announce that Launcher has executed a Space Act Agreement with NASA Stennis Space Center for the location of our full-scale test fire facility.

The first campaign is expected this summer as part of Launcher’s U.S. Air Force SBIR Phase II contract to test-fire Launcher E-2, our 22,000-lbf thrust, 3D printed liquid rocket engine.

We are thankful for the opportunity to test our engines at such a capable and historic liquid rocket engine testing center.

Launcher continues to be headquartered in New York City at the Brooklyn Navy Yard and to operate its sub-scale testing facility on Long Island, NY in Calverton, Riverhead.
