Research

The engineering challenges posed by developing rocket systems provide a good ground to contribute to- and learn from the scientific community.  Over the years we have published many papers on several different international conferences such as the International Astronautical Congress and the Joint Propulsion Conference last year in the US.

Not much of this work would have been possible without the support from the staff of the Space Systems Engineering Department at the TU Delft. We would specifically like to thank Ir. B.T.C. Zandbergen and Dr. A. Cervone.
