EIFFAGE: SUCCESSFUL LAUNCH OF LATITUDE'S NAVIER ENGINE
The Navier rocket engine, entirely developed and 3D-printed by Latitude, underwent a first conclusive test campaign based in part on the reliability of the engine test rig.
Latitude's Navier rocket engine, which incorporated the Syclone by Clemessy monitoring & control software, underwent a successful trial.
The Reims-based start-up orchestrated its first successful launching test campaign from Saxa Vord base in Scotland. The launch of the first Zephyr rocket is scheduled for 2024.
A second version of the Navier engine, more powerful than the current model, will undergo a new test campaign this year.
Latitude has been growing rapidly for over two years and aims to become the leading launch operator for small satellites weighing less than 100 kg.
