Our HILBERT engine testbed acts as a technology demonstrator for our novel thermodynamic cycle.
Propellant Delivery & 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 also delivered multiple bespoke electronics and propellant delivery projects for external customers.
Thermodynamic Simulation & Optimisation
Protolaunch have developed a suite of in-house thermofluid simulation and optimistaion tools with particular capability in modelling two-phase flows and system-level optimisations. Protolaunch has conducted a major computational study utilising these tools in collaboration with the European Space Agency.
