Scale Up of a Game-Changing Hybrid Rocket Propulsion System for Sounding Rockets and Smallsat Launchers

HyImpulse applied for EU funding through the SME Instrument, part of the EU's Horizon 2020 program.

With SME Phase 2 HyTEC HyImpulse intends to accelerate the scale up of hardware and business component of the Mini Launcher and enter the sounding rocket € 1-2 Billion market, demonstrating hybrid propulsion as a safe, green, and low cost alternative for smallsats access to space.

This work will also lead to a complete formulation and execution of the launcher production strategy that benefits from European technology expertise in composites and 3D printing. Major cost reduction from HyImpulse by half compared to competitors is planned thanks to mass (serial and automated) production of hybrid rocket engines. This project will lead to direct growth, leadership, independent access to space and complement other institutional European launch offerings by filling the lower end (payload mass) of satellite launch products.
