Rocket engines are an integral subsystem of solid propellant rockets. The TU Wien Space Team has been working on such engines for several years:

  • TS01-70N represents the team’s very first rocket engine and produced up to 70N of thrust. It was the beginning of a new era for the team.
  • TS02-500N is the follow-up project to our first rocket engine and is also compatible with nitrous oxide. It is also used a testing platform for the engine of the rocket µHoubolt.
  • TS03-24kN “Franz” is being developed to test rocket engines in the scale of the suborbital rocket Houbolt. The test stand will be able to handle up to 24kN of thrust and will be the biggest test stand in use in Austria.
