Relativity, the Los Angeles-based manufacturer of 3D-printed rockets, has signed its first public commercial contract with Telesat, the longtime vendor of satellite services for telecommunications and business information.
The deal marks the first agreement between a major satellite operator and an entirely venture-backed company in the New Space industry and is a huge win for Relativity’s low-cost rocket manufacturing platform.
Relativity’s first launch of its Terran 1 rocket, the first fully 3D-printed rocket built using Relativity’s proprietary printing technology, is slated for the end of 2020. The company already has a launch site at Cape Canaveral in Florida and a test facility at NASA’s Stennis Space Center right on the Mississippi-Louisiana border.
