Southampton University Collaboration Enters Next Phase
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
The Protolaunch team visited Southampton University for the formal handover of system hardware as the collaboration shifts into the testing phase.
Protolaunch and Southampton University have been collaborating on a propulsion hardware project funded by the SPace Research and Innovation Network for Technology (SPRINT) since December 2019.
Despite the disruption caused by a global pandemic, the Protolaunch and Southampton teams have strived to adapt to changing circumstances and continue to develop the technology in a safe manner.
The formal handover marks a major transition in the project with design and manufacturing elements formally signed-off. System-level testing can now begin in earnest with major results expected towards the end of 2020.
