Relativity, the 3D printed rocket manufacturer, inks multi-year contract with Telesat

Relativity, the Los Angeles-based manufacturer fo 3D printed rockets, has signed its first public commercial contract with Telesat, the longtime vendor of satellite services for telecommunications and business information. 
The deal marks the first agreement between a major satellite operator and an entirely venture-backed company in the “New Space” industry and is a huge win for Relativity’s low cost rocket manufacturing platform.
Relativity’s first launch of its Terran 1 rocket, the first fully 3D printed rocket built using Relativity’s proprietary printing technology, is slated for the end of 2020.
The company already has a launch site at Cape Canaveral in Florida and a test facility at NASA’s Stennis Space Center right on the Mississippi-Louisiana border. It’s currently in the process of acquiring a launch site in California that will expand its launch capabilities for customers, according to Relativity chief executive, Tim Ellis.
