Our goal is to deliver a truly versatile propulsion system – a hybrid air-breathing rocket engine that can power an aircraft from a standing start to over five times the speed of sound for hypersonic flight in the atmosphere, and over 25 times the speed of sound for space access. With its wide range of operation and scalability, the Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine (SABRE) represents a defining moment in powered flight.
A new class of engine for propelling both high speed aircraft and spacecraft.
We have developed world leading capabilities in advanced heat exchanger development, design and manufacture.
To build the world’s most powerful cooling systems, we’ve invested in the most advanced manufacturing technology.
Reaction Engines’ patented heat exchanger technologies present the opportunity to create a step change in thermal management solutions across a range of industries including aerospace, automotive, energy and industrial processes.
Reaction Engines has successfully tested its innovative precooler at airflow temperature conditions representing Mach 5, or five times the speed of sound, marking a significant milestone in the development of its SABRE™ engine and paving the way for a revolution in hypersonic flight and space access.
Reaction Engines is recognised by the Institute of Physics, winning a Business Innovation award at the institute's annual Business Awards in Westminster.
