TriSept has teamed with RocketStar to provide flexible, affordable, and reliable space launch opportunities for small satellites.
Rob Spicer, CEO of TriSept Corporation is pleased to announce a launch opportunity for small satellites in partnership with RocketStar, LLC (www.rocketstar.nyc). This agreement enables TriSept – a 23-year space launch and services business – to provide small satellite launch opportunities on board RocketStar launch vehicles, with flights starting as early as the first quarter of 2018. RocketStar’s innovative approach to rapid, reusable and low-cost launch coupled with TriSept’s proven experience in small satellite integration and launch helps fill a much-needed gap within the small satellite industry for available, reliable, cost-effective space launch services.
Chris Craddock, RocketStar’s Founder, commented, “We are very pleased TriSept has chosen RocketStar as its launch partner because of our extreme value proposition that comes from the economies of scale we are achieving around our aerospike engine. TriSept is uniquely positioned to gain the most from our rocket technologies.” TriSept’s expertise and innovations in small satellite launch integration are the ideal complement to RocketStar’s innovative launch vehicle and propulsion designs.
TriSept CEO, Robert Spicer added, “This is a great opportunity for small satellite owners to leverage TriSept’s launch experience and take advantage of an innovative launch concept. TriSept will provide the planning, engineering, and integration services to aggregate small satellites into a common launch platform saving both time and money for our customers.” TriSept will work hand in hand with the RocketStar team to inject flight proven methodology and repeatable processes to their integration and launch campaigns – providing a high level of flexibility and adaptability to meet customer launch and operational schedules. This partnership also provides US Government customers easy access to RocketStar’s launch vehicles through TriSept’s GSA Schedule 70 service offerings.

Chantilly, VA – TriSept Corporation has been selected by NASA’s Launch Services Program (LSP) to integrate the first three missions of the Venture Class Launch Services (VCLS) contracts. This is a bold new move for NASA as they move to a more agile approach to launch. Only five companies were pre-selected with firm fixed-price indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contracts to compete for the VCLS launches, TriSept being one of them.
TriSept will be responsible for providing all services, facilities, and resources required to support the launch Integration efforts on:
- Rocket Lab – Electron – 14 payloads
- Virgin Galactic – Launcher One – 17 payloads
- Firefly – Firefly Alpha – 12 payloads
Each manifest contains NASA provided CubeSat’s of varying size and weight (1U through 6U), providing a complexity challenge to the integration of the manifest. While the SmallSat arena is now starting to bloom, TriSept is more than experienced enough to handle the integration needs of a growing industry. TriSept has spent the majority of its career in aerospace in the integration of large and small satellites, and multiple payload launches. Founded in 1994, TriSept’s core services include launch integration, program management and systems engineering, software architecture and development, as well as program information assurance.
