BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (Orlando Business Journal) — A Tucson, Ariz.-based aerospace company is planning to assemble and launch its rockets at Cape Canaveral, and interestingly enough, it looks like the firm has ties to SpaceX.
Vector Space Systems Inc. — an aerospace firm that builds 42-foot-tall rockets called Vector Rapide, or Vector-R for short — is planning to erect one of its rockets at Space Florida’s Launch Complex 46 on March 25 that will then be included in a brand new display at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex — the first commercial space rocket to be featured.
The display at KSC will be open to the public on March 27.
However, in addition to Vector-R being at the Launch Complex 46, company CEO Jim Cantrell will announce the intention of the company to use the launch facilities in the future, according to a news release from Space Florida.
Orlando Business Journal’s sister paper Phoenix Business Journal reported in January about Vector unveiling its Vector-R rocket, credited as being the world’s smallest satellite launcher rocket.
