The Rocket Test Facility
Dedicated rocket engine test facility at Westcott Venture Park, UK.
The Control Systems
Supporting infrastructure has proved crucial in experimental test campaigns and this has fueled the development of multiple in-house fluidics and control systems for datalogging, cold-flow and hot-fire testing.
Protolaunch has delivered multiple bespoke electronic control units and propellant delivery projects for external customers.
The Modelling Expertise
Protolaunch have developed a suite of in-house thermofluid simulation and optimistaion tools called ProtoSim. The package has particular capability in modelling two-phase flows and system-level optimisations. Protolaunch has conducted a major computational study utilising this tool in collaboration with the European Space Agency.
