The ambitious SkyKover project with its new matrix satellite network, together with the emerging markets of mining and manufacturing on the Moon, required by the end of the 2070s a new launch vehicle concept that could achieve larger space shipments, with weight and dimensions much higher than the traditional ones.


The new Alpha-Triton reactors with a modular architecture developed by the company Seat ProSpace allowed the necessary increase in load. Its central rocket Proteus, the longest built to date, is a direct heir to the transoceanic missiles used by the former People’s Republic of China during the conflicts of 2053 against the more nationalist North America.
