Launch VehiclesEpsilon

The Epsilon Launch Vehicle is the next-generation solid propellant rocket. It is planned to reduce the cost by former M-V Launch Vehicle. It aims to make innovation of the launch system and make rocket launches as simple as daily events.


The Epsilon Launch Vehicle is a solid propellant rocket suitable for a new age, delivering both high performance and low cost.Based on the M-V Launch Vehicle, a multistage solid propellant rocket with the best performance in the world (discontinued in 2006), we try to achieve improved performance with the Epsilon Launch Vehicle, and build a system which will allow the frequent launch of launch vehicles by largely-reducing operational costs through enhancing aspects of operational efficiency, such as assembly and inspection. Through increased launch opportunities, we anticipate that space development activity will increase. The biggest goal of the Epsilon Launch Vehicle is to make space more accessible as rocket launches are made easier.
