Multiple Payload Ejector (MPE) Carrier Program

The MPE is a low-cost, lightweight carrier designed for educational, scientific, and Exploration Program technology experiments. The carrier accommodates multiple primary, secondary, and tertiary payload configurations.

The initial launch of the MPE is planned as a DARPA Falcon launch vehicle (LV). DARPA Falcon is not to be confused with the Space-X vehicle called Falcon. MPE is compatible with any DARPA Falcon LV and for use on Falcon-class and higher impulse capable small launch vehicles.

MPE is part of the Small Launch Vehicle Research project.
