Payloads approved for launch
We’re committed to keeping New Zealanders informed about the range of payloads launched into space, from New Zealand.
As part of this commitment we are releasing, on a quarterly basis, a summary of all payloads approved for launch by the Minister for Economic Development.
Summary of approved payloads
We have approved a range of payloads for launch from New Zealand and this diversity is shown below by country, owner, purpose and size of all payloads up to 30 September 2023.
Where information has not been published about a payload, there are grounds for withholding that information under the Official Information Act 1982.
