RocketLab和York Space System达成了合作备忘录。
应该是说,用York家的小卫星平台然后用electron发射可以节省很大一部分系统整合时间。
同时也可以减少分别选择卫星平台和发射载具的时间。

大概就是更加服务化,一个合同同时购买卫星开发和发射服务。

Rocket Lab正在考虑增加在美国本土的发射场进行发射服务
http://spacenews.com/rocket-lab-selects-four-finalists-for-u-s-launch-site/
CINCINNATI — Rocket Lab announced July 10 that it has selected four potential locations for an American launch site for its Electron rocket, with a final decision to come in August.

In a statement, the company said it had shortlisted Cape Canaveral, Florida; Pacific Spaceport Complex – Alaska; Vandenberg Air Force Base, California; and Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia as the potential locations of what it calls Launch Complex 2.

Rocket Lab said it will select from among those four sites for the complex in August and start construction “immediately” thereafter. The company said it expected to have the site completed and ready to host its first launch in the second quarter of 2019.
While Launch Complex 1 is capable of hosting one launch every 72 hours, Rocket Lab said adding a U.S. site would help it attract customers, particularly government agencies, that would prefer to launch from American soil.

“Launching from U.S. soil adds an extra layer of flexibility for our government and commercial customers, offering an unmatched ability to rapidly deploy space-based assets with confidence and precision,” said Peter Beck, founder and chief executive of Rocket Lab, in a statement.

The four launch sites offer different options for Electron launches. Cape Canaveral and Wallops are best suited for launches to low and mid-inclination orbits, while Alaska and Vandenberg are used for launches to sun-synchronous and other high-inclination orbits. The company said it will use “current and anticipated manifest demand” for specific orbits as one factor in the selection process. Other site selection factors include construction and operation costs and regulatory issues.

新一组10台引擎出厂,可以看到最左面的一台是真空版,余下九台是地面版。Rocketlab计划年内出厂第100台引擎。

PS:厂房里悬挂美国国旗,说明制造在美国,总装测试在新西兰。

现在总算是搞清楚美新两家的分工了:箭体在新西兰奥克兰制造,引擎和电子设备在加州制造,新西兰发射的火箭在奥克兰总装,而美国发射的火箭则直接在发射场进行总装。
这应该是N-1的不成功尝试之后首种在发射场组装的液体火箭了。
For Electron launches from New Zealand, the avionics suites and engines will ship from California to New Zealand and be integrated to the propellant tanks and stages at the Auckland, New Zealand, facility before Electron is shipped to its launch location on the Mahia Peninsula.

For launches from the U.S., Electron tanks and stages will be shipped from New Zealand to the launch site at Wallops, its engines and avionics shipped from California to Wallops, with the entire vehicle being integrated at its launch site.
