Rocket Crafters, Inc. (“RCI” or the “Company”), based in Titusville, Florida, is a highly innovative development-stage company that is crafting a new era in space access.
RCI, a veteran-owned Utah “C” corporation, was originally founded in Layton, Utah in October 2010 for the express purpose of further developing and commercializing a new breakthrough Hybrid Rocket Engine (HRE) technology called D-DART™ invented by Company co-founder, Ronald Jones.
RCI intends to provide launch service customers a safe, affordable, customer responsive means to access space. As a first step toward realizing this mission, RCI is developing Intrepid-1™, the first in a family of low-cost launch vehicles made possible by the Company’s revolutionary rocket technology. Intrepid-1 is being developed to meet the needs and requirements of the fast-growing, quickly evolving small satellite community.
Rocket Crafters is currently engaged in rocket propulsion research & development, launch vehicle design-engineering, supply chain development, marketing & sales, and launch service logistics planning and development. All of this activity is geared to position the Company for accelerated development, with the goal of Intrepid-1 becoming flight operational by Q4 of 2018.
The RCI Business Plan is about a breakthrough technology that will provide affordable space launch capability in support of an exploding demand to economically, safely, and reliably deliver Small Satellite (“SmallSat”) payloads to the precise orbit specified by each client.
