Before and during launch, as well as during the journey through the atmosphere, a rocket's valuable cargo is protected by a payload fairing. Beyond Gravity is the world's leading supplier of composite technology for payload fairings, including for the European Ariane and Vega launch vehicles, the American Atlas and Vulcan rockets, or the Japanese H3. Our payload fairings have been successfully used in over 400 rocket launches to date. They are built using composite technology based on aluminum honeycomb cores with carbon fiber reinforced composite cover layers. This design allows the combination of low mass with high stiffness.
Our automated industrial process does not require an autoclave and allows for significant time and cost savings. To date, all our payload fairings in various sizes and configurations, ranging from 0.7m diameter for small launch vehicles to 5.4m, have an unmatched 100% success rate. We also provide our customers with the support they need at the launch site. Data on the dynamic behavior of the payload fairings during separation are routinely measured, transmitted to the ground control station and analyzed by our specialists.
