On-demand payload return from orbit

On-demand and low-cost downmass capabilities from Earth orbit

Getting mass to orbit is hard. Getting mass back down to Earth safely is even harder. The RED-25 (currently in development) enables on-demand return to anywhere in the contiguous United States. When coupled with a propulsive stage, the RED-25 will be capable of performing a diverse set of missions, including orbital free-flying, deep space, and interplanetary missions.
