List of SpaceX Contracts

I couldn’t find a list of known SpaceX launch contract values, so I made my own list with all the launches I could find prices for. I’m sure there are some missing so please let me know if you are aware of any other contracts with known values and I can add them.

Some notes:

  • I skipped Falcon 1 launches since they’re not relevant these days
  • I didn’t include payloads that were contracted for Falcon 1 but ended up launching on Falcon 9 (CASSIOPE, Orbcomm, Formosat-5, etc.) since they’re special cases and don’t reflect real Falcon 9 prices
  • I found some commercial launches with estimated contract values but I’ve decided to not include those unless it’s a well-sourced estimate
  • I included booster information since it might factor into the launch price


  • May 13, 2021 – USSF-67 contract value was increased by $16.7M
  • Mar 9, 2021 – New Falcon 9 contract for NROL-69 and USSF-36 added
  • Feb 9, 2021 – PPE/HALO launch contract added
  • Feb 4, 2021 – Added the new SPHEREx launch contract
  • Jan 1, 2021 – Added the Tranche 0 Transport and Tracking Layer launch contract
  • Nov 29, 2020 – Added the USSF-67 contract from August 2020
  • Nov 17, 2020 – Added Türksat 5A/5B launch contract from 2017
  • Sep 25, 2020 – Added new IMAP contract; value of the GPS 3-launch contract was reduced by $52.7M for using flight-proven boosters
  • Jun 30, 2020 – GPSIII-SV03 contract value was reduced by $9.5M in exchange for booster recovery
  • Mar 29, 2020 – DART contract value was increased by another $1.3M

Thanks for the great job you do.

Thanks for the data! I am going to create a post at the SpaceX redit showing how SpaceX is getting an ever bigger share of revenue from the gov’t. Now with Starship HLS and FCC Rural Broadband the scales will tip even more toward USG revenue in 2022.
