Orbiter SN1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Orbiter SN1 [Launcher]

The Orbiter, developed by Launcher, is a free flying satellite deployer.

Orbiter has a payload capacity of up to 400 kg and integrates with every CubeSat and small satellite separation system. With a propulsive capability of 500 m/s delta-V, Orbiter expands the capability of major rideshare missions and more accurately places your spacecraft in its exact orbit. The propulsion system is fueled by ethane and nitrous oxide.

Orbiter SN1, carrying (Skyline Celestial), MDQSAT 1A,1 B, (NPC Spacemind), PROVES-Yearling, Sapling 1 (Sapling Sempervirens), Unicorn 2G, 2H
, was launched in January 2023. Although initial contact was established, the solar arrays failed to provide power. Due to the power failure, the satellites on board were not deployed.
