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…
Highlights of project work carried out by Rocket Engineering:
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.
