POLARIS Raumflugzeuge ("Spaceplanes") is a German aerospace company founded in 2018. The objective of POLARIS is to develop, manufacture and operate a novel class of winged, horizontal take-off space launch vehicles. The "Aurora" launcher will enable a new and highly economic way of spaceflight, with providing fundamental improvements in cost efficiency, flexibility, availability, and safety.

The concept was initially designed at the German Aerospace Center DLR in 2015-2018. Technical data and documentations were made available to POLARIS under a DLR license agreement.

The POLARIS team has a research & industry background with deep experience in the areas of space launcher systems design, reentry thermal protection systems, and cryogenic systems.
