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.
