Cocoa, Fla., March 8, 2023—Vaya Space, Inc., the vortex-hybrid rocket engine company, and emerging leader in sustainable space access, today announced that they have been allocated Launch Complex 13 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida by the Space Launch Delta 45.
Kevin Lowdermilk, CEO of Vaya Space said, “We are proud to be selected as one of the four companies in the first round of the Launch Pad Allocation Strategy by the Space Force and we truly appreciate their support of commercial space launch. We are pleased to call SLC-13 home.”
The 2-pad launch site has been allocated to Vaya Space and Phantom Space through the Launch Pad Allocation Strategy (LPAS), created to support the growing commercial space market and demand at the Eastern Range.
“Launching from SLC-13 gives Vaya Space a long-term home on the Eastern Range to support our customers' launch needs,” said Rob Fabian, COO of Vaya Space. “We're looking forward to many launches from there alongside our friends from Phantom Space. It's encouraging to see a new generation of commercial space launch vehicles rise up in the footprints of the old Atlas launch vehicles the site was built to launch.”
