The breadth of our commitment and involvement in space propulsion extends to a vast range of services and associated expertise in support of spacecraft and launcher propulsion. These supporting services are used extensively at our own facilities and also for the benefit of our customers. Typical support services include:


  • Test facility design, engineering, operation and maintenance.
  • Hot firing and environmental test execution.
  • Propulsion testing from component to systems level.
  • Launch support at spaceports - worldwide.
  • Propellant supply and delivery - world wide.
  • Ground support and safety equipment.
  • Making hazardous operations safe for our customers.


The Lampoldshausen support team comprise highly qualified engineers and technicians in the fields of propulsion, systems engineering, design, electrical and mechanical engineering and chemistry. The team not only supports Airbus Safran Launchers projects, but also a diverse range of external customer projects. The knowledge gathered and applied for over 20 years enables our customers to profit from a considerable wealth of experience and know-how.


Having a wide range of stationary and mobile equipment available, our operational team can react with high flexibility to customer needs.


Our services have proven vital for the successful development and qualification of such in-house projects as the Aestus and Vinci rocket engines, ESA's Automated Transfer Vehicle propulsion system and the external project VEGA AVUM (Complete Upper Stage Assembly).


Our propulsion testing and supporting services enables both ourselves and our customers to secure complete project control and autonomy.
