ABOUT  US

Protolaunch is a chemical propulsion and space mobility company developing rocket engines to power the in-space economy.

 

Continuous deep-throttling engines, ideally suited to: 

Kick Stages    |    In-Orbit Propulsion   |   Landers

Our patent-pending technology focuses on removing complex turbopumps without sacrificing performance. 

 

 Protolaunch operates a dedicated rocket engine test facility within the Westcott Space Cluster with full propellant delivery and data acquisition systems for engines up to 15kN.

Working with partners including the European Space Agency, UK Space Agency, Protolaunch is rapidly bringing our revolutionary new propulsion products to market.
