Launchspace Technologies Corporation has the unique capability of using space-based sensor satellites to detect and track orbital debris that is smaller than currently possible. Our orbital debris removal spacecraft removes small orbital debris that can damage or destroy satellites and make spaceflight unsafe for astronauts and the International Space Station (ISS).
With safety and security being of the utmost importance, our sensor satellite solution and orbital debris remediation spacecraft provide protection capabilities to our space-based national security satellites from being hit by orbital debris or other satellites and provide warnings about the threat of attack by our adversaries.
We hope to invite all Launchspace investors to our planned launch for our ISS project in 18 months, with an after party celebration at the Kennedy Space Center.
Success to Date
- Launchspace is on the International Space Station (ISS) to measure orbital debris
- Signed contract with Airbus to test our orbital debris removal and spacecraft shielding solution for 12 months on their ISS Bartolomeo platform and bring it back to Earth after 1 year so Launchspace can analyze the effectiveness of our space qualified orbital debris solution
- An Airbus in-kind contribution of $5.24 million for putting our solution on the ISS
- NASA Space Act Agreement: NASA is designing customized materials for Launchspace’s patented orbital debris removal solution
- Space Force: A funded study on closing major observation gaps in our ability to see threats (space domain awareness - SDA), which protects our national security satellites, and our country, from attack
- Commercial customer for funding Launchspace's integration into their launch vehicle
- Additionally, the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), manager of the ISS National Lab, under a cooperative agreement with NASA, has awarded Launchspace a grant for up to $214,500 for our ISS orbital debris mission
- Strategic relationships with government leaders at NASA, the Pentagon and the Space Force
- White House meetings
Launchspace believes it is the only company in the world with a NASA Space Act Agreement for orbital debris technology development
Launchspace believes it is the only company in the world with these important capabilities in low Earth orbit (LEO)
KingsCrowd, a leading ratings and analytics company that covers the crowdfunding market, recommended Launchspace’s Offering to the subscribers of their service. KingsCrowd covers 60 crowdfunding platforms and only recommends two stocks every month.
Space Force, NASA and the Department of Defense (DoD) for Launchspace’s:
- Orbital debris solution on the International Space Station (ISS)
- Critical sensor satellites for National Security Space (NSS) applications
- Launchspace expects a cooperative research and development agreement (CRADA) for securing sensors for a national security mission
- Manufacturing space for fabrication and testing our orbital debris solution, with potential grants
Launchspace believes commercial customers will ultimately be the main revenue source for our orbital debris remediation and data solutions.
There are three threats to spaceflight safety and the upcoming $1 Trillion global space economy:
- Orbital debris
- The inability to manage the 100,000+ new satellites that are forecast to be put on orbit in the next 10 years (Space Traffic Management - STM)
- Military threats from adversaries against our National Security Space (NSS) satellites that keep our country safe from attack
The orbital debris population includes thousands of dead and retired satellites, parts of spacecraft from decades of missions, items exploded in warfare testing, and more. Dodging space junk is a regular requirement for spacecraft on orbit.
The International Space Station has had to maneuver 25 times between 1999 and 2018 to avoid collisions, and it had to dodge debris three times in 2020.
Monitoring such debris is a major issue as private space travel and the space economy continue to experience rapid growth. As the world increasingly becomes reliant on satellites, the U.S. and global satellite businesses bear the brunt of failure to track and remove orbital debris.
Additionally, adversaries to the U.S. take advantage of blindness gaps in our ability to detect and track threats to our national security satellites due to solar effects. These observation gaps leave these satellites, and therefore our country, open to attack.
Launchspace holds key patents for resolving the orbital debris problem as well as a space-based sensor satellite solution that will improve the ability to detect and track space-based threats from adversaries to our national security satellites.
We’re currently developing a low Earth Orbit (LEO) sensor satellite solution to detect and track orbital debris and active spacecraft in low and geosynchronous Earth orbits (LEO and GEO) and Cislunar Space (space between the Earth and the Moon).
Our orbital debris and sensor satellite solutions are designed to provide the ability to detect and track orbital debris, active satellites and threats from adversaries as well as remove orbital debris for national security, civil (NASA and NOAA) and commercial customers.
The orbital debris threat isn’t going away… with the number of satellite launches growing exponentially, there will be the ongoing need for Launchspace's innovative solutions.
Launchspace’s revenue model is based on recurring subscription revenues from our orbital debris remediation and sensor satellite solutions that are protected by our patents and trade secrets that are critical to ensuring safe access to space and protection for vital space assets.
Our space-based sensor solution will cater to customers in need of:
- Precision data for national security customers (Space Domain Awareness)
- Orbital debris detection, tracking and remediation
- Space traffic management (STM)- precision sensor satellite data to detect and track 100,000 satellites expected to be in low Earth orbit in 2030 and the growing orbital debris population
With the exponential increase in satellites and spacecraft on orbit, the orbital debris threat that we expect to be in excess of 1 trillion pieces between 1 mm and 2 cm (that currently can’t be seen) and the space traffic management problem of 100,000+ new satellites on orbit by 2030, aren’t going away.
Launchspace provides long-term solutions to orbital debris remediation, space traffic management and national security threats from adversaries with sensor satellites (data) and orbital debris removal spacecraft. Launchspace believes these revenue streams provide significant growth opportunities.
According to the Space Foundation, In 2020 the global space economy was valued at $447 billion and is projected to grow to a $1+ trillion market in the coming years.
In 2020, $271 billion was in the global satellite industry and $117 billion was directly in satellite services. 
Spacefaring nations require a safe orbital environment in which to successfully operate and deliver their services to world markets. Every commercial satellite operator must have insurance against satellite failures and accidents.
The orbital debris problem has reached a point where in the future, insurers might not provide coverage unless satellite operators have protection against collisions from orbital debris and other satellites by using sensor data and orbital debris remediation solutions.
National security space operations require precision tracking data on all space objects that may represent threats to their security. According to the Department of Commerce, commercial space commerce is expected to grow to $1 trillion in annual revenues in the next 5 years and $2 - $3 trillion in annual revenues in the next 10 years.

The securities offered via this Offering will be available solely to citizens, permanent residents and companies of the United States of America.
Launchspace Technologies Corporation (LTC) has designed our Investor Identification Policy to ensure our company can prioritize U.S. national security. Other more common investor controls or regulations such as CFIUS (Committee for Foreign Investment in the U.S.) generally only cap maximum ownership at the direct investor level, and prohibit explicit control. However, we believe that indirect influence can be just as powerful, as investors can take actions that influence company behavior without having explicit control. For example, an investor with ties to a foreign sovereign government may not continue to provide financing to LTC in future rounds if their national interests have diverged with those of the United States at that time.
For another example, an investor might provide negative feedback to LTC management about a new product strategy in a domain such as space-based sensors for national security applications that is more controversial for them politically. Finally, a foreign-backed investor will need to report on their portfolio outlook, including LTC’s market positioning and product strategy – while this can be done while honoring confidentiality and export restrictions, it still provides valuable intelligence to foreign entities on key developments in the top tier of the U.S. technology sector.
To address these concerns, this policy 1) looks past the direct investor to their beneficial owners, and 2) is enforceable retroactively, in that we hold a repurchase right if the policy is violated regarding only U.S. investors and companies for this offering. If an investor is subsequently found to not be a U.S. individual (defined as a U.S. citizen or permanent resident) or company, or has a beneficial owner that is not a U.S. individual or company, LTC has the right but not the obligation to purchase LTC’s shares from this agreement at the original price the investor paid.

One of our investors replied this morning that the investor deck we included in our e-mail was not attached. I’ve seen this before with Netcapital announcements. The attachment is clearly there when I look on my laptop but it is only part of a rectangle at the bottom of the e-mail when I look on my mobile phone. Please click on the bottom of the previous e-mail where you see the top part of the rectangular shape and you will then see our latest investor deck. And again, I’m sorry we limited this opportunity to accredited investors. We have had several Netcapital investors recently invest in Launchspace from our recent e-mail. However, we are not doing an offering such as a reg CF for crowdfunding, so we have to, with apologies, limit this to accredited investors.
Please feel free to ask questions here or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The contract opportunities in front of us are growing and we want to grow Launchspace based on these opportunities.
I’ve attached a new investor deck so you can see our progress and contract opportunities. I think you’ll find this deck very well summarizes what we do at Launchspace and why we believe we have a defensible position that should lead to making us the leader for the removal of lethal non-trackable (LNT) small orbital debris along with providing data to government and commercial customers.
I’d like to offer accredited investors what could be the last opportunity to invest in Launchspace as an individual investor prior to any future potential IPO or exit, such as from an acquisition. Please e-mail email@example.com if this is of interest to you. With apologies to retail investors, we can’t take retail investment since we are not doing another crowdfunding offering.

We are well into discussions with institutional investors; we want to grow Launchspace based on multiple opportunities. We’d like to offer accredited investors what is likely to be the last opportunity to invest in Launchspace. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if this is of interest to you. Unless we do an IPO, we can’t take retail investors unless we do another offering similar to Netcapital, which we don’t plan to do. We will continue to update investors here on our progress.
- NASA now has authorization from Congress to remediate orbital debris; we expect contract opportunities with NASA to grow substantially
- Airbus submitted our proposal into their venture group for multiple on orbit demonstrators for a non-dilutive investment into Launchspace
- We submitted proposals to the Space Force and the Pentagon, after involved discussions, for 5 technology demonstrators for our sensor and orbital debris remediation solutions
- May 1, 2023Dear Investors, I neglected to mention...
I neglected to mention yesterday that outside of the NASA and Space Force opportunities, Airbus just submitted a proposal to their demonstrator group for non-dilutive funding for 2 Launchspace missions on the International Space Station (ISS) and one for a spacecraft mission. There were four options between $12 million (for building and ground-based testing the demonstrators) and up to $23 million for the space-based demonstrators. Airbus can fund projects to help enable them to take a market leading position. It is our hope that one or several of these projects are fund by Airbus.
If you have not previously sent us your contact information, please e-mail email@example.com We are looking for additional investment in Launchspace to increase our headcount and capabilities for these contract opportunities. Netcapital only provides the name of investors and how much you invested, not your contact information.

We are planning on raising additional capital to grow our staff and capabilities for expected opportunities with NASA, the Space Force and commercial companies. It would be appreciated if you could provide us with your contact information. Last week was the annual Space Symposium in Colorado Springs. The expectation has been that NASA would take its leadership role in orbital debris remediation. Until recently, Congress had not given authorization to NASA to do this. Now we see contract opportunities for orbital debris remediation. We met with the senior technical leadership at NASA and still believe we have the only credible solution for small debris removal. The budgets for these efforts at the Space Force and NASA have grown over time, but now we are seeing the budgets for orbital debris remediation growing significantly, along with this authorization
I also had meetings with senior leadership at the Space Force for our sensor solutions.

Today our International Space Station (ISS) payload was handed-off from the Airbus office at NASA Johnson Space Center to Southwest Research Institute to characterize the orbital debris environment in the ISS orbit. NASA has now put into their budget, money for orbital debris remediation contracts, including the remediation of small orbital debris. Some statistics, our average investment was almost $800 which is large for Netcapital and our largest investment was $30,000 with several at $25,000, etc. From what I was told by Netcapital, this is MUCH larger than average. Many of you have replied to my request for contact information because we don’t have your direct contact information, only your names. I still have not heard from many of you, including 6 of our top 7 investors. I would appreciate hearing from ALL of you, we have 420 investors.

Attached is the image of the returned payload from the International Space Station (ISS). We purchased the heat shield on a Pentagon experiment so we can passively measure orbital debris in space at a very small fraction of the cost to develop a payload, put it external to the ISS and then return it to Earth. If you look up NASA pricing in our reviewed financials, just opening the ISS airlock is $1 million. A full mission might cost $10 million. The heat shield covering the payload has been subject to orbital debris impacts for 9 months. Airbus will hand off the heat shield to Southwest Research Institute to measure debris impacts as small as .1 mm
Step 1 in our 4 step road map is now complete and we are already well into step 2, part of which was covered by our NASA Space Act Agreement. I’m encouraged by the e-mails we’ve been receiving from investors. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for updates and future webinars.

Our payload from the International Space Station (ISS) has been returned to Earth and is currently at the NASA Johnson Space Center. It will be handed off to Airbus tomorrow and then sent to Southwest Research Institute for analysis of any orbital debris impacts from its ISS orbit. Many companies have a business plan to go to space. It’s quite the milestone to get to space and bring a payload back to Earth.
The next planned step is the orbital debris remediation demonstrator on the ISS with Airbus. Attached is our orbital debris roadmap.
I’d like to do a webinar discussing where we are and next steps for investors if more than a few reply or I can answer your questions individually. Please reach out to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We don’t have direct e-mail contacts from Netcapital so this is the best way to sign up for webinars and more frequent updates as we have to separately follow up on the Netcapital Portal.

Our demonstrator on the International Space Station (ISS) to measure orbital debris is scheduled to return to Earth in February. It would have been sooner but you probably read that recently, a Soyuz spacecraft docked at the ISS was hit by orbital debris and rendered unusable. We plan to examine the demonstrator to characterize the orbital debris environment in space in preparation for our mission on the ISS with Airbus to test our orbital debris remediation technology. Most of NASA’s data on the orbital debris environment dates back to 1997 and we all know that due to collisions and many launches of satellites since then that the debris environment has become quite dangerous, which is a threat to spaceflight and the global space economy.
NASA and the Space Force are increasingly getting larger budgets for solving the orbital debris problem.
Thank you for your investment in Launchspace!
John Bauman Chief Executive Officer email@example.com
- Nov 14, 2022Dear Investors, We submitted a proposal for a...
We submitted a proposal for a NASA debris remediation opportunity and are finalizing a proposal to the SINTRA program (Approx. a $100 M program) to detect, track and characterize orbital debris as small as 1 mm. Airbus gave us a new contract for another mission to the ISS for our technology, waiving fees again, and we have a rideshare opportunity to put our debris detection technology in a sun synchronous orbit. We filed a patent for this technology as well as for identifying threats from adversaries. Our demonstrator to measure orbital debris in the ISS orbit is expected to be brought back to Earth in January.
We want to return to Netcapital. It’s been less than 1 year so we can only raise half the amount with reviewed financials, $535,035, minus what we’ve already raised, which is $206,000.

Dear Netcapital Investors,
I apologize for not following up sooner. I should have our reviewed financials for 2021 completed within a week. We have been extremely busy after the government agency that is the R&D arm for the Intelligence Community (IC) released a request for information (RFI) for detecting and tracking small orbital debris. We responded to the RFI in March. RFI responses let the government know what solutions are available and help shape their final request for proposal (RFP). We expect the Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to come out within a month. If this program does get approved, it could represent a large contract opportunity for Launchspace. We have been busy lining up partners for our proposed solution.
I’d like to do a webinar for investors in the near future. Could investors e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can sign you up for future webinars and also, if you have any questions for me about Launchspace.

Dear Netcapital Investors,
Based on our milestones, I am asking for investors to consider making an investment that we are earmarking for our NASA Space Act Agreement (SAA) payment that is due in 2 weeks for $70,000. This is in our budget on our Offering page; we have already made other payments to NASA for our SAA. NASA has designed and tested materials that will be part of our patented orbital debris removal solution that we plan put on orbit with Airbus on the International Space Station (ISS). We are already on the ISS to measure the orbital debris environment with Skycorp.

Dear Netcapital Investors,
The attached picture shows the military experiment on the International Space Station (ISS). It aims to be deployed tomorrow on the outside of the ISS. Launchspace owns the IP and marketing rights to the outer layer that protects this military experiment. Orbital debris aims to impact this Multilayer Insulation (MLI) protection layer for 9 months after which it plans to be returned to Earth. Launchspace plans to take possession of this MLI so we can examine it to determine the orbital debris density around the ISS.
To get something into space that aims to bring back meaningful data is a very big accomplishment. If you have any questions, please put them in the Discussion Board.

Dear Netcapital Investors,
I have attached the press release on our International Space Station (ISS) deployment with Skycorp and how we will use this deployment to measure orbital debris. It should be published in SpaceNews either later today or tomorrow, and there might be an additional article about Launchspace in SpaceNews. We have done this 18 months ahead of our scheduled ISS orbital debris project with Airbus.
I should have some updates in the very near future about some very large government contracts in the area of orbital debris as well as sensor satellite solutions that Launchspace is going for.
If you have any questions, please put them on the discussion board. Thank you for investing in or at least considering investing in Launchspace.
John BaumanSkycorp and Launchspace Technologies Press Release 2-25-2022 Final.pdf
- Feb 28, 2022
- Feb 24, 2022Dear Netcapital Investors, I want to announce...
Dear Netcapital Investors,
I want to announce an exciting milestone for Launchspace. We have a deployment on International Space Station (ISS) 18 months early by working with Skycorp. Skycorp launched their intelligent Space Systems Interface Flight Qualification Experiment (iSSIFQE) payload over the weekend and it is currently on the ISS. It is scheduled to be put on the external (outside) part of the ISS next week. This payload is planned to encounter orbital debris impacts for the next 9 months. Launchspace owns all IP and marketing rights to the external layer (Multilayer Insulation - MLI) protecting Skycorp’s ISS payload. We plan to take possession of this MLI layer in 9 months when it is returned to Earth at which time Launchspace aims to examine it to determine the amount of orbital debris that is in the ISS orbit. This data will be helpful for our own ISS demonstrator with Airbus in 18 months.
Most of the data on small orbital debris dates back to 1997. With all of the recent collisions and anti-satellite tests as well as the launch of many thousands of satellites since 1997, Launchspace believes that the small orbital debris that can’t currently be detected or tracked but is a threat to astronauts, satellites, the ISS and our military satellites is far more profound than is quoted in the press. I realize that some of this is “dry technical details”. This is a very important milestone towards space qualifying our patented technology for orbital debris removal.
If you have any questions, please put them on the discussion board.

I hope you are having a great holiday season and are staying safe. The three threats to spaceflight safety for astronauts, satellites and our national security space-based assets that keep our country safe from attack are orbital debris, the ability to manage the 100,000 satellites that are forecasted to be put on orbit in the next 10 years (Space Traffic Management) and military threats. We believe Launchspace is one of the only companies that has a comprehensive solution that addresses these threats. In the last 10 days we were interviewed by 2 reputable news sources, where I discussed in great detail the threats and solutions to spaceflight safety, the biggest being the orbital debris problem.
Hopefully one or both of these publications will publish an article about Launchspace in the near future. I have included below the link to the longer presentation and Q&A that we did with Netcapital so that you can understand in great detail what we do.
We appreciate your investment and if you have any questions, please post them in the discussion forum for Launchspace.

Hello Netcapital investors & watchlist users,
I wanted to offer some insights on what we are doing. I’ve limited our capital raise to U.S. investors only due to sensitive technology that we could use with sensor satellites to watch for threats from adversaries to our national security satellites in addition to looking for orbital debris. This might have somewhat limited the investment potential from the Netcapital community but the Department of Defense (DoD), the Space Force, NASA and other government agencies won’t give contracts to companies that have foreign control from countries that are unfriendly to the U.S. So this approach protects the revenue and profits of Launchspace, and we also believe it’s also important to ensure our technology is not used by anyone our government considers to be an adversary to the U.S.
We have been approached several times by “funds” that claim to be from a foreign ally and upon background check, they weren’t.
I want to wish all of you a Happy Holiday Season and encourage you to reach out to me on the discussion board if you have any questions.

Hello Netcapital Investors & watchlist users,
Today the spacewalk on the International Space Station (ISS) was delayed due to orbital debris. What made the news once every few months is now happening pretty much every week. The orbital debris threat is growing rapidly. That’s because there are forecasted to be 100,000 new satellites that will be put on orbit in the next 10 years, spaceflight is growing exponentially and the risk from collision and clogged orbits, threatening the upcoming $ 1 trillion global space economy, is very high.
Launchspace is the only orbital debris company that has a NASA Space Act Agreement for partnering with NASA to develop our patented orbital debris technology, we are the only orbital debris company that plans to put an orbital debris remediation solution on the ISS and Airbus is waiving $5.24 million in costs for putting our technology on the ISS.
I think this would be a great time to consider investing in Launchspace. Nearly every major news organization has published a story about this event, here is a link to a story in SpaceNews.
If you have an questions, please follow up and post on the discussion page.
Thank you for your consideration, we are working very hard for investors to see a great return on their investment and really believe this is a very important service we are providing to the space industry.

Hello Netcapital Investors,
As many of you know, last week Russia tested an anti-satellite weapon which created orbital debris that threatened the International Space Station (ISS). We were asked by SpaceNews, one of the leading space industry publications, to discuss our thoughts on the situation. I’ve attached a PDF document where you can read more.
Please note our closing date and if you have any questions, please ask them on the discussion board. I very much appreciate your consideration and belief in Launchspace, please know we are working very hard to bring you a great return on your investment.
