1 – Scaled erection/retraction system

Name of the system:

Scaled erection/retraction system

Lead entity within the SAMMBA consortium:

MT Aerospace

Attachment point within the process chain of the Spaceport operator:

The system responsible for erecting and retracting the microlauncher at the launch pad.

Major benefit [KPI] within the process chain: [cost reduction/processing time reduction/reliability
increase – preferably with quantitative figures]

Increase in compatibility with multiple launchers: The erection/retraction system is not dedicated to a specific launcher but is comptabile with multiple launchers.

Anticipated R&D vector for the near/mid/long-term:

Near-term targeted market segment: operational for one mini-launcher
Mid-term targeted market segment: operational for several mini-launcher
Long-term targeted market segment: bigger launcher

Modularity granted with the following standards:

The scaled erection/retraction system doesn’t require special modifications and can be used at any spaceport.

Interoperability granted with the following standards:

Fixation of the system on the ground/surface to avoid moving during launch

Systems interfaced:

Launcher, AGV for transport of the launcher, mechanical structures
