Formation flight for in-Air Launcher 1st stage Capturing demonstration

Project description

Leading the way, metaphorically and practically

Space systems are notoriously expensive, requiring years of research, development and testing along with high-tech materials and electronics that withstand the harsh working environments to which they are exposed. The ability to retrieve and reuse components is critical to enhancing sustainability and competitiveness for both governments and commercial endeavours. Reusable launch vehicles (RLVs) that can survive both launch and re-entry are a key priority to reduce the cost of access to space, and only a few are in use globally. Advancing the EU’s leadership position in space entrepreneurship and exploration, the EU-funded FALCon project is progressing the technological readiness of in-air capturing to bring the EU's advanced RLV home for continued service.
