ESA finances high-thrust demonstrator

Snecma (SAFRAN Group), the prime contractor of European cryogenic propulsion, and its European partners of the Joint Propulsion Team signed High Thrust Engine demonstrator contract with ESA.

This is a 20M€ addendum with Snecma, Astrium GmbH and Avio SpA, on the future High Thrust Engine Demonstrator of the first stage of Ariane Next Generation Launcher. The contract has a total value of more than 33M€ and integrates key European competences of 14 companies in 9 countries.

Cryogenic liquid propulsion has been selected for main stage propulsion trade-offs for its flexibility, growth potential and proven records. This project encompasses a complete set of technology activities on advanced subsystem to meet ambitious objectives in terms of costs and reliability. "Liquid propulsion technologies development and system studies in the frame of ESA Future Launchers Preparatory Programme federate the efforts of the European industrial teams and prepare future decisions regarding the next generation launchers", said Jacques Serre, Vice- President, space engines division Snecma.
