This company wants to launch satellites into space via drone | C4ISRNET

Space startup Aevum had a bold innovation in mind to launch satellites in space via drone. They officially unveiled the new Ravn X drone, which is built in the hopes of launching rockets into orbit every three hours. It is an 80-foot-long drone designed to launch small payloads into low Earth orbit. “This entire process is more or less fully autonomous, and this allows us to reduce the cost of labor that’s required by about 90 percent,” said Jay Skylus, CEO of Aevum. Ravn X’s first mission will be the ASLON-45 mission for the U.S. Space Force that is focused on showing how the company can get a payload into orbit in 24 hours or less, said Skylus.
