Choosing a Launch Provider – Smaller Rockets

Stimulated by the growing demand for small satellites many small launch vehicles are in development and most of the heavy lift launch service providers have, or are planning to develop a smallsat launch capability.  Many are also using the services of rideshare aggregators.
Small launch vehicles are less expensive to develop and launch, and therefore in the reach of more companies who do not want to be bundled with and dependent on the timing of multiple smallsats.  For launching a large number of satellites in a relatively similar position however, heavy lift rockets may prove more cost effective per kg, and more reliable due to their track record.
