Swiss Propulsion Laboratory At a glance
1SPL-Intro© SPL, Switzerland and its Space Industry Switzerland is a founding member of ESA (ca. 130 Mio. /y) Universities: Rosetta space probe, biol. experiments for ISS etc. Lots of high tech companies, only few into space technologies, none in propulsion Two Examples:
2SPL-Intro© SPL, Founding of SPL Founded by 3 engineers (today: 7 members and additional helpers) in autumn 98 as a non-profit research organization. Financed by priv. funds and sponsoring (ARO- TECHNOLOGIES) Aims: –Development of launch sytems for small payloads (X-Bow launcher family) –Close cooperation with universities, companies and other research groups –Main focus: Design, build and test propulsion related components and equipment like injectors, comb. chambers, (cryogenic) valves, igniters, pressurization systems, complete thrust test stands etc.
