Excalibur Almaz’s space transportation services developed from proven designs and flight-tested spacecraft can help the South Africa National Space Agency (SANSA) acieve its National Space Programme (NSP) goal of becomming a leading space player far in advance of its 2030 target date.  SANSA in cooperation with Excalibur Almaz can begin launching cargo and microgravity research missions as early as 2014 and crewed Low Earth Orbit and Lunar Missions as early as 2015.  These space transportation capabilities would not only place SENSA as leader in the region but also in the global space value chain.

Since its formation in 2005, Excalibur has been working towards completion of our human space transportation program for science, sovereign nations and tourist. Our main partners include NPOM, United Space Alliance (USA), EADS Space Transportation (Astrium) and NASA on their Commercial Cargo & Crew Program through a Space Act Agreement (SAA). Excalibur Almaz owns four Reusable Reentry Vehicles (RRVs) and two space stations purchased from NPO Mashinostroyenia (NPOM) of Russia. The RRVs have been to orbit and reentered the earth’s atmosphere nine times. The designer has stated the RRVs can be reused at least 15 times. The use of flight-tested spacecraft and hardware provides a very cost effective and time saving approach to the space transportation business.
