The Swedish Space Corporation (SSC) and US space transportation company Firefly Aerospace have signed a collaborative agreement to launch satellites from the Esrange Space Center in Sweden, starting in 2026.

This will establish an orbital launch service in Europe, supporting commercial, civil, and defense customers.

The new launch service will build on the success of Firefly’s orbital Alpha missions from the Vandenberg Space Force Base in California and supplement Firefly’s new launch capability at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport on Wallops Island, Virginia.
