Armadillo Aerospace is a leading developer of reusable rocket powered vehicles. We are focused on VTVL (vertical takeoff, vertical landing) suborbital research and passenger flights, with an eye towards eventual paths to orbit.
Founded in 2000, we have an unequaled experience base with over one hundred flight tests spread over a dozen different vehicles. We have done work for NASA and the Air Force, and flown vehicles at every X-Prize Cup event. We performed the very first flight under the new FAA/AST experimental permit regulatory regime, and we have made over a half dozen more permitted flights since then, all fully insured and observed by on-site AST personnel.
