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


  • 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
