Payloads

The Orbex Prime launch vehicle can place up to 180 kg of customer payloads into Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO).

SSO is the most popular orbit for applications like Earth Observation (EO) due to the consistent ground illumination conditions it achieves, providing small satellite customers with the perfect location for their payload to deliver its mission.

Prime is designed to accommodate a wide selection of payload types ranging from single mini satellites (up to 200 kg depending on final orbit) to Nano Satellites and CubeSats.
