Space is hard

Managing a space mission is more expensive than launch services and spacecraft components combined

On average, a first tech demo mission takes 4 years and up to $8 million with only 40% rate of success.

Teams using Precious Payload's digital space mission manager get to orbit in less than 2 years and $2 million.

Power of choice

Offerings from many partners. More options to come.

Awais Ahmed

CEO and Co-Founder,

Working with Precious Payload has been a pleasure. From understanding our requirements very clearly to getting us solutions with a fast turnaround time, it was a very professional and speedy process. Highly recommend.

Mohd Izzed Mustaffa

Deputy Project Manager,
GNSSaS satellite project

Using the Precious Payload online platform has certainly contributed to reducing the time in finding the optimal launch solution for our mission. Through the Precious Payload working team, we then have formed a good relationship with the shortlisted launch service supplier whereby we were able to negotiate an optimal agreement in order to satisfy both organisation's internal procedures.

CEO and Founder,
Zenno Astronautics

Insane value for money. Responsive, well-connected, professional team.

Marco Pavan

CEO and Co-Founder,
SteamJet Space Systems

At SteamJet we develop water-powered propulsion technologies for Small Satellites and CubeSats. Precious Payload has been our partner during one of our In-Orbit Demonstrations and supported us through the different stages of our mission, providing expertise and support in both project management and technical topics.

Anton Ossovskiy

CEO and Founder,
Avant Space

I would like kindly appreciate Precious Payload for the great job. Guys rapidly created a mission profile for our 3U mission and conducted a mini-tender for launch services. The Precious Payload team shared Avant Space’s mission data room with four launch providers and helped generate the launch and fundraising strategy. Two proposals were received in just a couple of weeks!

Frequently asked questions

What rockets do you offer for my launch?

Heavy and medium rockets (Falcon 9, PSLV, Vega, and Soyuz-2), or small ones (Electron and LauncherOne), in-orbit transportation services and space buses (Momentus, D-Orbit), suborbital spaceplanes and balloons are available for you.

Should I book my launch in advance?

We strongly encourage you to start thinking about a launch and book a spot in advance (T-18 months) in order to get ready by approving of ICD (Interface Control Documentation) or completing safety and testing requirements. You can book your launch online up to 12 months before lift off, but keep in mind that the process of getting a launch agreement can last between a couple of weeks and 6 months depending on your mission design and objectives.

With whom do I sign my launch agreement?

Directly with the launch provider. We will guide you in order to make the negotiations and paperwork faster and easier.
