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.
