The following brochures are available to view online and download. If you require a printed version or more detailed product information then please contact us.


Chemical Propulsion Systems

First pioneered at the Lampoldshausen propulsion centre, modular propulsion systems have now become a standard used by satellite manufacturers around the world.



Propulsion System Components

In addition to complete propulsion systems, we supply separately - propulsion subsystems and component parts including hydrazine thrusters, ion thrusters, bipropellant thrusters, apogee motors, propellant tanks and fluid valves for propellants and pressurants.



Bipropellant Tanks

Bipropellant tanks range from 180 to 2100 litre capacity. A tank capacity may be precisely matched to system requirements by varying the tank cylindrical section length between the domes.



Total Ground Support

The orbital propulsion centre provides total ground support including on-site hot fire testing, supply of ground support equipment, supply of propellants, propulsion systems integration at customer facilities, propellant loading at ranges world-wide and consultancy on all aspects relating to propulsion systems, propellants and associated infrastructure.



RESUS - Rescue Systems for Submarines

An independent onboard submarine recovery and rescue system enabling buoyancy from any depth under emergency situations
