The Chimera Engine is the biggest technological step forward yet; a student designed hybrid rocket engine that our propulsion team has been working on.
With a hot fire of our Chimera engine scheduled for Q3 2022, the engine will be refined and improved on in order to develop a flight weight model to be used in our engines for future launches. With our partners at Thyssenkrupp we are manufacturing our test engine using the highest quality engineering materials available
The Chimera is a hybrid rocket engine. It uses both a non-volatile yet powerful solid fuel, HDPE, and a liquid oxidiser, N20, to achieve safe and effective performance.
