RML Spacelab Floating Launch Platform Unveiled

RML Spacelab has unveiled their new floating launch platform or sea launch platform as named by the team. Unlike Sputnik designed by Peter at Copenhagen Suborbital’s, his new platform design is able to be disassembled and fits inside a standard shipping container, enabling easy storage and movability to any launch location desired!

The platform is able to be tilted by up to 5 degrees by the use of ballast tanks, similar to the way a submarine works, has a built in guide wire system (but can be equipped with a launch rail) and can accommodate a rocket of up to 3 tons in weight and 7 tons of thrust.
