12015-07-18. Firefly Space Systems выпустила Payload User’s Guide.
Firefly Space Systems, выпустила Payload User’s Guide для своего перспективного ракета-носителя Альфа, который в настоящее время находится на этапе разработки. Из документа потенциальные пользователи могут узнать о том, что:
1. Новая ракета будет выводить на низкую околоземную орбиту около 400 кг.
2. Стоимость пуска составит 8 млн. долл.
3. Первый пуск состоится в 2017 году.
4. Ракета будет полностью проводиться в Техасе, что позволяет компании надеяться на благосклонность со стороны военных заказчиков пусков. Тэги: Firefly Space SystemsFirefly alpha
22015-09-11. Firefly проводит тестирование двигательной установки второй ступени.
Разработчик ракеты сверхлегкого класса, компания Firefly Space Systems, провела успешное тестирование ракетного двигателя второй ступени ракеты Альфа. Тестирование производилось на тестовых стендах которые расположены в Техасе. По результатам тестирования в компании выразили уверенность в коммерческих перспективах своего проекта и обнародовали планы по отжигу двигательной установки первой ступени в начале 2016 года. Также в компании обнародовали некоторые характеристики своей стендовой базы которые позволяют сделать вывод о том, что компания может не ограничиться сверхлегким классом ракет, а выйти на производство более мощных ракет. Кроме этого, в компании рассчитывают выйти на уровень производства 50 РН Альфа в год.Тэги: Firefly Space SystemsFirefly alpha
32015-10-15. НАСА анонсировало заключение контрактов на запуск малых космических аппаратов.
НАСА объявило о том что выделяет порядка 17.1 млн. долл. компаниям-изготовителям ракет сверхлегкого класса. При этом в агентстве отдельно подчеркнули что это будут запуски исключительно малых КА. В качестве исполнителей контракта выбраны Firefly Space Systems, Rocket Lab и Virgin Galactic. Запуски будут профинансированы в рамках программы Education Launch of Nanosatellite. Что характерно, никакая из компаний пока что не осуществила ни одного запуска своих ракет. Однако, НАСА на вопросы по этому поводу ответило, что они осознают все риски которые связанны с этим фактом, но готовы пойти на него.

42016-11-15. Компания Firefly получила письма с подтверждением 42 запусков.
Компания Firefly Space Systems PR, которая занимается разработкой сверхлегкой ракеты (Alpha) анонсировала свой план запусков до 2021 года. Согласно обнародованным данным:
1. В период до 2021 года компания может провести порядка 77 пусков своей ракеты в интересах 9 заказчиков.
2. Объем предварительных соглашений составляет около 580 млн. долл. Тэги: Firefly Space SystemsFirefly alpha
52017-03-13. Компания Firefly может быть продана с аукциона.
Согласно опубликованному в USA Today сообщению, активы американского стартапа, который специализировался на создании сверхлегкой РН, должны быть проданы в четверг с аукциона. Ранее стало известно о том, что компания приостановила свою деятельность в сентябре из-з финансовых трудностей. Кроме этого, над имуществом компании тяготеет иск со стороны Virgin Galactic, которая обвиняет Firefly в нарушении авторских прав. Тэги: Firefly Space SystemsFirefly alphaVirgin Galactic
