The Haas 2CA, a Single Stage to Orbit (SSTO) rocket, is able to launch 100 kg (220lbs) of payload into low earth orbit at $1million/launch. The rocket has an exceptional mass ratio, and it has one stage that is fueled with hydrogen peroxyde and kerosene. The SSTO configuration is made possible by the use of:

 
- dense propellants;
- advanced fabrication tehniques for the composite propellant tanks;
- the Executor Aerospike, linear rocket engine that promises optimum performance at virtually all flight levels, allowing the use of up to 30% less fuel than any other rocket engine;
- the thrust vectoring control achieved by throttling 8 out of 16 combustion chambers, eliminating the heavy and complex gimbaling system for the engine;
 

The Haas 2CA will operate on the nano/micro satellites market, which is based on a SpaceWork and Eurostat forecast indicating 3,000 satellites between 1- 50kg will require a launch between 2016-2022. The total market value is estimated to be $5.3 billion in the next decade. At $1,000,000/launch, the Haas 2CA perfectly fits into this market seeking economical solutions.
