Dr Robin Davies will talk about the SABRE engine, developed by Reaction Engines, which is a new leap forward in propulsion technology.
It combines a pre-cooled air breathing engine capable of Mach 5 with a rocket engine to create a power plant capable of propelling a vehicle into orbit with a single stage.
One such vehicle is the SKYLON spaceplane which is also under development at Reaction Engines with the help of ESA and the UK government. The technology promises a reduction in launch costs for a satellite of around a factor of 10 utilising a completely reusable vehicle.
This event is open to all and can contribute towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as part of the IET's CPD monitoring scheme.
