A talk from EMF 2022 by DAVID JOHNSON

On Saturday June 4, 2022 at in Stage B

The B2Space satellite launch solution is based on the “rockoon” concept (rocket + balloon), and will comprise of a stratospheric balloon, which will lift a self-operative platform from which the launcher is deployed. A solid propellant rocket will deliver the satellites into the required customer orbits (Within Low Earth Orbits [LEO] ), which are orbits with altitudes ranging from 200km to 1000 km, approximately).

The talk will describe the concept and the steps taken to develop the rockoon project.
