The Cyclone-4 launch vehicle is used for efficient and highly accurate injection of a single or multiple spacecraft into circular, geostationary, and sun-synchronous orbits.

The launch vehicle burns hypergolic storable liquid propellants.

The Cyclone-4 is the newest and most powerful rocket in the Cyclone family. The Cyclone rockets that have been in operation since 1969 (Cyclone-2) and are widely recognized among the most reliable launchers in the world.
