Abstract


This paper presents the activities in the area of liquid propulsion, which received an effective boost at the end of the 90s. There is a consensus among specialists on the use of liquid propulsion in the next generation of satellite launcher vehicles in order to increase significantly both the performance and the satellites insertion accuracy. Several activities in this area are in development, among which should mention, the L5, the L15 and the L75 LPRE, the specifications for engine testing facilities for components and rocket stages, and a human resources program for training in the areas of liquid rocket engine design, manufacture and testing.

Keywords


Liquid propulsion, LPRE, Future perspectives.
