On 22 March 2018, the full-scale demonstrator of a thrust chamber for an upper-stage rocket motor, called ETID or Expander-cycle Technology Integrated Demonstrator, arrived at the DLR German Aerospace Center test facility in Lampoldshausen for functional tests.
It incorporates the newest propulsion systems that will help prove new technologies, materials and manufacturing techniques that offer higher performance at lower cost for Europe’s future launchers.
The project is part of ESA’s Future Launchers Preparatory Programme.
