The Vector-H offers increased payload capability for the same wide range of small satellite mission profiles as the Vector-R. Like the Vector-R, the Vector-H fairing is a traditional two-piece design to reliabily place your satellites in orbit.
After stage separation, the Vector-H Stage 2 uses 1 “LP-3” engine to place your payload in to orbit. The stage is capable of re-lighting allowing for multiple deployment scenarios and orbit types.
LP-1 x 6
The Vector-H Stage 1 uses 6 “LP-1” engines to lift the rocket off the pad and carry it to the edge of the atmosphere. At approximately 500 km in altitude, the liquid oxygen and liquid propylene powered stage, shuts down and separates from the Vector-H Stage 2.
The two stage Vector-H vehicle is capable of placing satellites directly into circular or elliptical orbits.
