The sky’s no longer the limit. The development of our innovative Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine (SABRE) is enabling us to go beyond everything that has gone before – from making space and hypersonic travel more efficient and more accessible, to applying our latest breakthroughs to bring a step-change in performance and efficiency to an array of commercial industries. We’re making it possible.
Meet our new class of hypersonic engine designed to propel both high speed aircraft and spacecraft.
Discover how our groundbreaking Applied Technologies division is set to revolutionise a range of commercial industries.
Explore the innovative manufacturing technology behind our development of the world’s most powerful cooling systems.
Our people are truly dedicated to making beyond possible. Every single day.
As the aviation industry explores evermore innovative ways in which it can become more sustainable, a leading figure in this campaign is a company called Ampaire.
We have successfully tested our innovative precooler at airflow temperature conditions representing Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, marking a significant milestone in the development of our SABRE engine and paving the way for a revolution in hypersonic flight and space access.
We are pleased to announce that we have completed the testing of two vital sub-systems of SABRE; the HX3 heat exchanger and the advanced hydrogen preburner. These sub-systems supply heat energy and air to the air-breathing core of the engine. Alongside our partners at Airborne Engineering and S&C Thermofluids, we have been able to conduct agile and robust testing campaigns in challenging circumstances. These experiments have yielded high levels of insight and expertise and are the latest in a wider series designed to validate SABRE technology.
Reaction Engines announces the appointment of Andrea Minton Beddoes to the Board of Directors
Reaction Engines is delighted to announce the conclusion of a concept study, conducted alongside the European Space Agency (ESA) Directorate of Space Transportation, into SABRE-Powered Launch for the anticipated 2030+ launch market.
The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) recently released its list of winners of its annual Honours, Medals and Awards for 2020 and Reaction Engines’ Dr Helen Webber and the HTX Team were among the winners.
