Masten Space Systems Introduces Xodiac And XaeroB

Designed As 'The Next generation Of Reusable Rockets'

Masten Space Systems has introduced two new rockets designed and built on the success of their predecessors – Xombie, Xoie, and Xaero.

On its blog, the company says it is bringing greater capability and more flexibility to better to serve its partners with the new rockets.

Both Xodiac (open frame) and XaeroB (aeroshell) share the core architecture that has powered Masten’s rockets to date – LOX/IPA; pressure fed, regeneratively cooled engine; Masten avionics and GNC. The two new vehicles also share many of the same components, enabling Masten to have more efficient operations and less risk of service interruption.

These new rocket vehicles continue to offer the features of Masten terrestrial test bed:
precision vertical landing
custom flight profile
rapid iteration
custom physical/mechanical integration
rocket powered station keeping

Masten says the flexible, adaptable platform is available now to help solve challenges that limited access to space imposes.
