The DLR In­sti­tute of Space Propul­sion has unique ex­per­tise in Eu­rope in the de­vel­op­ment and op­er­a­tion of en­gine test rigs. Since 1959, en­gines for launch­ers and space sys­tems have been test­ed and fur­ther de­vel­oped at the DLR site in Lam­pold­shausen.

HyEnD rocket

The HyEnD rock­et was as­sem­bled in the so-called Sky­lark Hall at Es­range Space Cen­ter. From here it is rolled to the launch pad, which is lo­cat­ed be­hind the build­ing.

The DLR Institute of Space Propulsion has unique expertise in Europe in the development and operation of engine test rigs. Since 1959, engines for rockets and space systems have been tested and further developed at the site in Lampoldshausen. This research is part of the European space programme. With the Ariane launcher family, Europe is in a position to independently launch satellites into orbit for a wide variety of applications, thus securing competitive and independent access to space. This is a prerequisite for the unrestricted use of satellite data.
