ExoTerra has been awarded a NASA Phase I SBIR to develop a solar electric propulsion upper stage for small launch vehicles. ExoTerra is partnered with Virgin Orbit and Advanced Space to advance the design of an upper stage capable of delivering up to 150 kg to Lunar orbit from a LEO launch by LauncherOne. The project has the potential to open Cis-Lunar space to microsatellites and micro-landers delivered to orbit by affordable small launch vehicles.
