Retro Propulsion Assisted Landing Technologies

Project description

Investigating technologies for reusable vertical landing launch vehicles

Reusable launch vehicles are changing the global market of space transportation systems, promising to drive down the cost of access to space. Existing rockets use a vertical take-off and vertical landing launch and decelerate by firing their engines against the velocity vector, the so-called retropropulsion. The EU-funded RETALT project aims to investigate key technologies for retropropulsion reusable launch systems. The consortium will examine the aerodynamics, aerothermodynamics (in-flight surface temperatures) and flight dynamics during both the outward and return flight phases, as well as navigation and control. It will also explore structural components, materials and mechanisms of reusable rockets.
