The Certification covers the design, development, production, test and launch of orbital launch vehicles for Virgin Orbit (Central Function).
Randy Daugharthy, Vice President of PRI Registrar, said:
“Virgin Orbit has demonstrated its commitment to world-class quality by implementing and becoming certified to the ISO 9001:2015 standard, and AS9100 aerospace standard.”
“They have joined an elite number of organizations worldwide that have achieved certification to both of these globally recognized standards. PRI Registrar is proud to partner with Virgin Orbit as a leading-edge technology supplier in their field in this accomplishment and looks forward to continued support of their objective of quality excellence.”
Dan Hart, Virgin Orbit CEO, said:
“With 33 satellites delivered to space and each positioned precisely in their chosen orbit, we have shown the capability and quality of our launch system.
“Our focus now is building on that track record even as we scale up production at our factory and as we bring our launch operations to new facilities like Spaceport Cornwall. Through this AS9100 certification we’ve formalized and tested our system to ensure our customers can trust us to deliver their satellites safely and precisely to the orbit they need.”
