Where are we based?
Our work centres are strategically located to support our global and domestic business development.
At our head office on the Costa Blanca, we are designing and manufacturing our first MIURA 1 rocket, which will shape the future of European aerospace. Our HQ offers unbeatable workspaces to develop sector-leading projects. Proximity and strong transport links to Elche and Alicante helps our team members adapt to the Costa Blanca culture and enjoy the local leisure facilities and restaurants.
More the 500 aerospace flight tests since 1966 have positioned El Arenosillo as the ideal facility for our launches. Its geographical location allows rockets to unload their useful load in a safe, controlled trajectory. It also houses launch support areas such as control rooms, communication systems and radars.
Since 2015, the PLD Space facilities at Teruel Airport have undergone constant growth, and now feature a hangar, a Flight Test Centre and a Full Stage Test Bench. A safe, inclusive, exciting workplace spanning more than 13,000 sqm, where our team can develop their abilities and make significant contributions to the leading European aerospace project: the MIURA 1 suborbital and the MIURA 5 orbital.
The Kourou spaceport in French Guiana will host the launch of our first MIURA 5 orbital rocket. It is the perfect location for rocket launches as it harnesses the additional velocity afforded by the Earth's rotation at the equator. As it is located in a nature reserve, special measures have been taken to minimise the environmental impact rocket launches.
