Stratolaunch has introduced a suite of air-launch systems designed to bring satellites into different orbits or inclinations.

The company said Monday its new offerings include the Pegasus space vehicle, which has performed more than 35 launches, and the Medium Launch Vehicle, which is designed for low-cost and flexible flight missions.

Stratolaunch will also offer the MLV-Heavy, a three-core MLV variant that can carry up to 6K kilograms of payload, and the Space Plane, which can provide in-orbit capabilities and cargo return services.

Jean Floyd, CEO of Stratolaunch, said the new space transportation vehicles will include a launch technology designed to deploy any payload to any orbit.

The vehicles are scheduled to enter service beginning 2020.
