Premium Content now includes the Euroconsult Launcher’s Database comprising over 450 launchers globally, whether existing, upcoming or proposed. It provides multiple attributed for each launcher, including:

  • Name of the launcher
  • Family of the launcher
  • Manufacturer and operator
  • Nationality
  • Launcher capacity category
  • Payload capacity to LEO, GTO and GEO
  • Date of first launch (effective or expected)
  • Status of engine testing
  • Type of reusability if any
  • Launch base for the existing or most advanced launchers

The database is filled with datapoints collected during hundreds of hours of research in open sources and interviews with launch providers. Nevertheless, due to its scale, to varying levels of launcher maturity and to the unavailability of information for many projects, all launcher entries cannot be filled exhaustively for all the features listed above.
