Press Release / November 10, 2014
ARCA SPACE CORPORATION is bringing about a new era for robotic flight with the introduction of AirStrato, an electrical powered aircraft designed to carry a 100lbs (45kg) payload and to fly at altitudes up to 60.000ft (18.000m). This product will fill a huge gap between expensive, large military unmanned aerial vehicles and less expensive, small-scale civilian commercial drones by combining the performance of the former with the price of the latter. This will allow small-scale businesses, research institutions and even individuals to benefit from an affordable, high performance aerial robot. AirStrato is amazing because it has global navigation capabilities and can reach any place on Earth; it can fly at altitudes nearly twice as high as commercial airliners; it is electrical powered and environmentally friendly; it can takeoff and land from any location, no matter how remote; it is easy to fly; it is very beautiful and most of all is affordable. When ARCA decided to create this aircraft we had only one goal in mind: to create a tool that will expand the human capabilities to explore and discover. The complete details and prices will be revealed on November 25th, 2014.
ARCA is a for-profit corporation established in Las Cruces, NM. Our main objective is the exploration of
space. In order to reach this objective, ARCA builds and launches the most cost effective space
vehicles. We are using technologies already existent, in an innovative way that allows access to
space on a large scale by reducing financial constraints. We want to accomplish this because we
strongly believe that the future of mankind is linked to the exploration of space.
We built and launched a series of aerospace vehicles that made ARCA one of the most well known
organizations involved in the development of private space flight.
2004 - During the $10 million, Ansari X Prize Competition, ARCA launched the first rocket, Demonstrator
2006 - ARCA built the world's largest solar balloon that lifted into the stratosphere the crew capsule of
Stabilo, a manned suborbital vehicle created after the end of Ansari X Prize Competition.
2007 - The Stabilo program continued, this time with an even larger solar balloon lifting the complete
Stabilo vehicle into the stratosphere.
2008 - ARCA joined the $30 million Google Lunar X Prize Competition.
2010 - Helen rocket was launched at 120,000 ft, the event representing the first powered flight in the
Google Lunar X Prize Competition. The rocket was transported into the stratosphere with the help of a
2012 - Haas rockets series was introduced, consisting of Haas 2B and 2C, a suborbital respectively
orbital rocket launchers. The development of these launchers is currently our main activity.
2013 - The European Space Agency (ESA) awarded ARCA with a contract to test the parachutes
system for the ExoMars spacecraft that will be launched to Mars in 2016.
2014 - Air Strato “The most amazing air robot in the world” performed the first flight at the beginning of
this year and it is ARCA’s first product to become commercially available.
