An engine technology demonstrator was integrated in the P3.2 vacuum chamber at the DLR German Aerospace Center test facility in Lampoldshausen for final hot fire tests that were completed in May 2019. These tests completed a highly successful nine-month campaign that will guide Europe’s next-generation 10-tonne upper-stage rocket engine design.
ETID was designed and manufactured by ArianeGroup (Germany), GKN Aerospace (Sweden), Safran Aero Boosters (Belgium), Aerospace Propulsion Projects (Netherlands), and Carinthian Tech Research (Austria), and tested by DLR Lampoldshausen.
The project was carried out within ESA’s Future Launchers Preparatory Programme.
