Are there any other?

    $\begingroup$ @Ludo that's suborbital? For the same reason I didn't include Copenhagen Suborbitals or MORABA. $\endgroup$ Commented Feb 7, 2022 at 14:21

    $\begingroup$ @BojanKogoj Their roadmap for MkIII includes orbital insertion, but that's not within their current capabilities. Also, it's a plane, not a rocket in the classical sense. $\endgroup$

Dawn Aerospace (The Netherlands) aims to provide orbital services with their MkIII space plane, the planned successor to their MkII.

Maybe not a "rocket company" in the traditional sense and admittedly the MkIII exists only in the future.

  • $\begingroup$ Well actually, Dawn is testing their spacecraft in New Zealand, and operates out of NZ, not just the Netherlands They are flying out of a remote valley plateau. You can find official video of it. Their Mk.II suborbital spaceplane has completed multiple flights, and multiple of those on rocket power, in high climb rates. Their final design, Mk.III, will do a suborbital hop, then detach a second stage (expendable, for now), to insert the payload. It's genuinly one of the coolest rocket companies out there, and I can't wait to see what they do. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 4, 2023 at 21:53
