OUR Philosophy

Vertical and Horizontal Freedom


high frequency


single stage



We transport people and goods between two continents and into space.

We will develop a high-frequency, single-stage, reusable space transportation vehicle by making the best use of Japanese domestic technologies, and create a next-generation space transportation business by significantly reducing transportation costs while maintaining high reliability.

Intercontinental travel to 1 hour
Space transportation in everyday life

We can travel anywhere on earth in an hour, even build huge structures in space.
We are making concrete preparations to make such a future a reality.
Our goal is to produce a single-stage space reusableplane that will significantly reduce the cost of space transportation.

Mach-speed point-to-point city carrier

High-speed two-point transfer

If P2P, the means we are aiming for, can be realized to travel at high speed between two continents via outer space, it will be possible to travel anywhere on earth in less than 90 minutes.
If we can fly to an altitude of 30 km, the density of the atmosphere will be less than 1/100th of that of the atmosphere, allowing for unlimited acceleration. For example, the International Space Station orbiting the Earth travels at Mach 22 and completes a full revolution around the Earth in 90 minutes.

In order to construct such huge structures such as hotels and power plants, a low-cost, high-frequency means of transporting people and cargo into space is required.
If such huge structures were to be constructed on the ground, large numbers of trucks would be required to transport materials and people would be required to assemble them on site. This is no different in space.

Number of structures launched into space

The number of artificial objects launched into space is increasing every year.
In the last year, 1,809 satellites were launched from Earth.
This is 14 times more than a decade ago. This trend is accelerating exponentially.

Increased 14 times in 10 years

Space solar power generation to be tested...
A "new energy source" that is not affected by weather conditions.

The demonstration experiment will be conducted jointly by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA JAXA) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT).
The panels will be installed on the New H-II Transfer Vehicle No. 1, which will deliver supplies to the International Space Station (ISS), and launched in FY2010.
The panels will be launched onboard the "New Space Station Logistics Module 1," which will deliver supplies to the ISS, in FY2010, and deployed in FY2011.

Space Industry Now and in the Future

Space development is no longer a dream but a goal. space utilization business is attracting attention as the next growth market after the it industry in the world.
Space Transportation will be Realized by the Private Sector

Space Transportation will be Realized by the Private Sector

Space Industry to be One Pillar of Japan's Economy The rockets developed in the 20th century have been innovated to carry more people and goods into space by combining the technologies that were possible at that time. However, most of them were "disposable" and carried goods and people at enormous cost, which was the norm in the world. In recent years, many players have entered the space industry, and as business becomes more active with satellites that send data to Earth in space and large modules that can make products that can only be tested and manufactured in zero-gravity space, demand will arise for more frequent and low-cost transportation of large numbers of people and large cargoes. We expect that this will lead to a demand for higher frequency and lower cost transportation of large numbers of people and large cargo. So, how can we transport large amounts of goods and people at lower cost? The key word is "reuse" of rockets. Rocket is usually equipped with an object to be transported to space on the tip of the rocket, which is then transported into space by a multi-stage rocket. This rocket itself is not destroyed and can be landed in place and used for the next flight. These efforts are being made possible not only by personnel with experience in aerospace development who develop rockets, but also by combining computer power, which has developed rapidly in recent years, along with personnel from a wide range of backgrounds. However, we believe that further technological innovation is the key to realizing a world where space business and life are truly accessible. We must comprehensively consider and create innovations in high-efficiency and high-performance propulsion systems, cost reductions through downsizing and weight reduction, and operational mechanisms that enable safe re-use and longer life. I am convinced that these are not things that can be completed by rocket engineers alone, but must be built by bringing together people from various fields and sharing their knowledge. The core of our business that we are now trying to tackle in the last five years is the concept of single stage space reusable (Single Stage To Orbit). From launch to arrival in space, the rocket arrives without detaching from the launch vehicle, separating cargo and people, and returning to the ground in its original state. This will reduce the cost per rocket launch to the limit, and we plan to build up a business that can handle high-speed transportation between two points, space travel, and low earth orbit satellite launch missions. For the next five years, we will concentrate our management resources on the development of this type of rocket, while building a foundation that will enable companies and individuals to do business in space based on this rocket.
The Transportation System We Aim for

The Transportation System We Aim for

Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) refers to a space vehicle that consumes only fuel and propellant and can reach a satellite orbit without detaching the engine, fuel tank, and other components of the vehicle. The development of this single-stage rocket will be extremely important to achieving our vision. The reason for this is that it can lead to the effect of reducing rocket launch costs through the reuse of airframe parts. The oxygen-laden tanks used as fuel to fly in a vacuum, although expensive, are detached mid-flight and disposable as they are, as a means of reducing the weight of the vehicle to reach outer space. However, if a single-stage rocket can be developed that does not require the detachment of a part of the rocket body to reach space, the problem of redevelopment costs for expensive parts can be solved, and further investment in space projects, more frequent launch tests, and lower-cost rocket launches can be realized. This will lead to further investment in the space business, more frequent rocket launch experiments, and a future in which the private sector can go into space at low cost. The realization of a single-stage, high-frequency reusablerocket will be a great challenge for the Japanese space industry.
Building a Space Transportation Platform is a Mixed Martial Art

Building a Space Transportation Platform is a Mixed Martial Art

A high-frequency transport system for people and goods cannot be realized by developing only a high-frequency single-stage transport aircraft. It is necessary to have a launch site that can safely launch and land, and a ground platform that manages and controls the launch site to smoothly check, maintain, and re-launch the transporter. Repeated launch experiments are extremely costly and time-consuming in the research and development of new transport concepts. By combining simulations using computing power and data that can be obtained from experiments, we aim to create an efficient R&D system similar to agile development in the construction of IT systems. Also, in the manufacturing stage of the transport aircraft, we are considering a system in which the R&D team, the manufacturing team, and suppliers can constantly share information to enable efficient and high-speed manufacturing, such as by building a more efficient supply chain and providing feedback for improvement using data that can be obtained from the components. In order to realize these goals, we believe it is necessary to bring together the wisdom and experience of not only engineers who have built their careers in the aerospace industry, but also those from various manufacturing and IT industries, and to foster a corporate culture that is not bound by conventional wisdom.
