Subscale Test Engines

Recently, work has been undergoing on the development of the 5kN Trailblazer main engine, and in the process we have found the need to quickly test and prototype various designs and production techniques. This lead to the development of small, 50lb rocket engines that provide us with a low cost method to test our propulsion systems. One of them is shown being built and assembled below.

Stay tuned for more updates, because we will be flow testing and firing the assembled engine shortly!
