Current Status

As road work and construction are anticipated to begin in late 2021, we’re working closely with local companies to finalize the engineering and design works for the facility. 

We are also working to ensure we complete all compliance activities outlined in our approved environmental assessment provided by Nova Scotia’s Department of Environment and Climate Change. Facility construction is projected to start in late winter/early spring 2022. 

Maritime Launch appreciates the support of the satellite community with seven signed letters of intent and MOUs from our clients, representing $1 billion in sales.
