According to ABL Space Systems, at a 1,200 kg payload capacity, the RS1 aims to provide meaningfully more payload capacity than many nanosatellite launchers. The RS1 can carry single large satellites or a combination of many 150kg to 350kg satellites to Low Earth Orbit. Additionally, ABL's launch systems and RS1 launch vehicle are packaged into shipping containers, making the entire launch pad mobile and deployable.
