About

The Small Payload Ride Share Association’s (SPRSA) purpose is to provide a forum for the small payload community to achieve the goal of “Routine, Affordable Access to Space for Small Payloads”.  The small payload community consists of government, industry, and academic organizations involved in building and operating small satellites, providing dedicated or ride share launch services and their associated spaceports, and supplying technologies, components, and technical services.  As the “new space” systems have demonstrated the value of small payloads, the community has experienced a dramatic increase in interest, investments, and activity.  SPRSA has transformed, along with the rest of the community, to address the broader spectrum of capabilities beyond ride share opportunities necessary for the growth of a healthy small satellite market.
