Radian One

Take off. Land.
Repeat.

Radian One is the world’s first crewed, single-stage to orbit vehicle with runway-like takeoff and landing. Our fully reusable, aircraft-like configuration requires far less infrastructure than vertical launch systems and can be reflown within 48 hours.
Flight Profile

Sled-assist takeoff

Radian One takes off subsonically with full propellant tanks.

Comfortable ascent

Low-G ascent for safe crew flight to LEO.

Flexible orbital operations

Missions range from once around to 5 days on orbit.

Reentry and landing

Wings allow smooth landing on any 10,000ft runway

Rapid reflight

Landing to launch times as fast as 48 hours.

Radian is developing one of the most important space vehicles I’ve seen to date. Building a responsive, single stage to orbit space vehicle that can take-off and land from existing runway infrastructure is a game-changer.

On demand space operations is a growing economy, and I believe Radian’s technology can deliver on the right-sized, high-cadence operations that the market opportunity is showing.

Dylan Taylor

Chairman and CEO of Voyager Space

Mix decades of experience with world-class talent and no pre-scheduled miracles - the Radian Aerospace team and its Radian One system are creating a new era of spaceflight.

Col. (ret) Bob Hodgkiss

Director of USAF Launch and Range Systems responsible for development, acquisition and sustainment of all launch and range systems

Wings create capabilities and mission types that are simply not possible with traditional rockets. What we are doing is hard, but not impossible thanks to significant advancements in materials science, the reduction of component size & weight and manufacturing technologies.

the rest of us.

Radian's system makes spaceflight affordable and routine, expanding access to space and unlocking the next generation of missions beneficial to humanity—such as scientific research, in-space manufacturing, and terrestrial observation.

Space Station Enablement

High cadence transport of personnel and cargo to and from public or private space stations.

Proximity Operations

Payload recovery, inspection, servicing, refueling, and other services are enabled.

Aircraft-like Operations

High cadence, short notice low G operations from facilities around the world

Customized missions

Missions that require human observers and operators are enabled

Accessible science missions

Minimal training is required to ride Radian to orbit, eliminating lengthy times-to-result and increasing accessibility to space.

Regular freight to and from LEO

Containerized cargo bay and 10,000lbs down mass of pressurized/unpressurized cargo support in-space industry.

Rapid point-to-point transport

Deliver anything under 5,000lbs anywhere on Earth in under an hour.
