OUR MISSION

We want to show that there are also simple ways to deal consciously with the raw materials and resources given to us. We use resources much too wastefully. Especially in space travel, a stronger signal must be sent. Many rockets are single-use or throwaway products. The space debris in orbit increases even more instead of reducing, although there are laws that every spacecraft should burn up after its lifetime in the atmosphere or be parked on a graveyard in space.

For this reason we are looking towards developing a self landing rocket demonstrator that is reusable, robust and easy to maintain/repair! This will be done using a 3D-print manufacturing method that works even in low or zero gravity environments. So we want to set the first milestone to produce rockets in space or on another planet like Mars or Moon. Here we have constantly in the back of the head to use also the potential space debris again for possible filament. Non-printable components such as electronics should be designed and laid out in such a way that they are easy to maintain/repair and allow them many life cycles.

FIRST SELF LANDING ROCKET IN EUROPE

The main reason for self landing rockets is the reusability. At the moment there is no self landing rocket in Europe. Some experimental rockets land on the ground by using a parachute. A big disadvantage of this is, that the landing site can be located in a very large radius. Depending on the terrain of the launch site, the recovery of the rocket may be difficult. Our rocket shall be able to navigate and land on a specified spot for easy recovery.

FIRST SELF LANDING HYBRID ROCKET

A few self landing rockets have been developed in recent years and only one is operable. These rockets are using throttleable liquid propellant engines. We took the challenge to create a self landing hybrid rocket. Hybrid engines are easier to handle because the solid fuel is a non-critical substance. Also, the oxidizers are relatively harmless compared to those used in liquid engines. Another advantage is that through the 3D printing process the fuel can be produced in any shape. This provides high flexibility.

FIRST NEARLY COMPLETE 3D PRINTED ROCKET

In industry, more and more components are manufactured via 3D printing. Even the filament material availability growth from day to day, so that even metal alloy filaments are available. This manufacturing method offers the possibility to produce complex components with a minimal effort in material. Some of the processes are also possible in low to zero gravity environment like it is in space or on another planet. The old traditional manufacturing processes often need a special adaption of the machines, with 3D printing that point is obsolete. This is an important point for the sustainable use of resources.

Yvah Flight ComputerYvah is a compact, powerful, and reliable flight computer designed exclusively for the Aspiration rocket. It shall provide a full real time flight data handling as well as active flight control. Besides attitude orientation it also includes navigation sensors for satellite Navigation.Nico EngineThe Nico engine is developed by Aspiration for use on its Aspiration 1 rocket. Nico uses gaseous oxygen as oxidizer and a 3d printed solid fuel in a hybrid propulsion system. The Nico engine is designed for recovery and reuse. Therefore, Nico is a throttleable and re-ignitable engine. To achieve the goal of having the possibility to manufacture the whole rocket in orbit, Nico is also 3d printed using metal.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

FAQ#1
What is a hybrid rocket/engine?

A hybrid rocket is a “mixture” between a rocket that uses only liquid propellants and one that uses only solid propellants. A hybrid rocket commonly uses a solid fuel and a liquid or gaseous oxidizer.
FAQ#2
How fast will be the Aspiration I rocket?

Faster than you can walk of course!
FAQ#3
Can I join your team?

Maybe you can, please contact us!
