Rocket Engineering’s project experience includes concept design of propulsion systems, supply chain identification, provision of technical support to flight programmes, interim project and programme management, and R&D into advanced space propulsion, from proposal writing, through to project delivery and roadmapping…


Rocket Engineering has been collaborating with the UK's Nuclear Space Power Working Group, NSPWG, which was formed in 2020 to define, promote and develop UK nuclear space power propositions through pooling knowledge and skills across industry government and academia, leveraging the nation’s significant investment in terrestrial nuclear energy systems development and supporting technologies. More about the NSPWG, chaired by Rolls Royce, and the other partners in this short briefing..


SuperMagdrive is a project funded by the UK Space Agency, and in partnership with Magdrive Ltd and Oxford University’s Centre for Applied Superconductivity CfAS. This was funded in part through a UK Space Agency National Space Technology Programme Pathfinder Grant, between November 2020 and April 2021. Find out more about SuperMagdrive in our case study report.
