Exodus Space Corporation is headquarted in Denver, Colorado, USA. Exodus is a world class intergenerational engineering team composed of highly experienced veterans of some of the most prominent aerospace companies and high caliber graduates of top engineering schools. Our technical team has been developing aircraft, launch vehicles and spacecraft since the Apollo era. We are eager to incorporate the best innovations and lessons learned from the last 50 years in space exploration and aerospace transportation into one truly revolutionary launch vehicle. While we recognize that the Vertical Takeoff Vertical Landing (VTVL) model of the 1950s may still be the best option for some missions, we believe that Horizontal Takeoff Horizontal Landing (HTHL) is the future of commercial space.
Build fully reusable spaceplanes for routine, reliable, versatile and affordable transportation to Low Earth Orbit (LEO) by eliminating every ounce of mass and drag that stand in the way of revenue but not at the cost of safety.
Utilize a two-stage system with maximized wing area to increase payload to orbit. Eliminate drag found in piggy-back or underbelly pylon aircraft launched vehicles, while increasing first stage acceleration before leaving the atmosphere.
Enable the second stage orbiter to escape from first stage booster malfunctions. Make every feature multi-tasking to enhance ascent, trajectory and reentry performance to provide a safe and comfortable ride.
Horizontal In-Line Launch Staging (HILLS) is the joining of two delta wing vehicles, nose to tail, to operate as one spacecraft, powered by the first stage until separation, to deliver the second stage to orbit. We embrace the best technologies of aero and space to deliver reusable economy to launch operations. Lifting surface area is provided by both stages allowing the booster wings to be smaller, thus saving mass. The smaller orbiter functions as a nose cone to the larger first stage minimizing frontal area drag.
