Reusable vehicles with the most rocket-powered landings in the industry.
World Experts in VTVL
Masten has demonstrated more than 600 successful flight operations across five vertical takeoff and vertical landing vehicles. These reusable rockets help mature precision landing systems, conduct plume-surface interaction tests, and validate next-generation space technologies for NASA, defense, and commercial customers. The test flights we conduct retire risk and advance technology readiness for missions to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
Xoie, Xaero, and Xaero-B are other terrestrial vehicles from our family of reusable rockets. Xoie won the NASA-funded Northrop Grumman Lunar Lander Challenge in 2009, expending the same ∆V as a rocket descending to the lunar surface from lunar orbit and demonstrating reusability. Xaero and Xaero-B were used to demonstrate higher altitude flight operations that informed Masten’s ConOps for small, agile launch teams.
