We are an enthusiastic and committed group of young individuals who are working “to put an amateur unmanned space capability in space” through the development of rockets and rocket related technologies.
TITAN ROCKETRY LABS are working towards an amateur unmanned space capability through a number of interlinked projects.
TITAN ROCKETRY LABS is currently working towards the goal of launching an amateur rocket into space, with the aim of proving that such a feat can be achieved by non-governmental groups on a tiny budget. TITAN ROCKETRY LABS have been working towards this mammoth goal for over five years now, following a staged & incremental approach. TITAN ROCKETRY LABS do not believe in wasting our precious time on project management or excessive paperwork. We prefer to follow an approach of hands-on, practical development & testing, to build up our experience & our confidence, allowing the final space vehicle to all but design itself.
Through this process, TITAN ROCKETRY LABS have developed an approach that allows us to work on several fronts simultaneously – saving time & giving greater scope for practical experience. TITAN ROCKETRY LABS are developing hybrid rocket motors to power our rockets. We chose hybrid propulsion over solid or liquid propulsion for the simple reasons that it is cheap, safe & reliable. Private solid rocket motor development & to a lesser extent liquid propulsion in Germany, is all but impossible due to legal restrictions on explosive manufacture.
TITAN ROCKETRY LABS is, at any one time, involved in several distinct projects that are interlinked, & that will eventually unite to provide the technical backbone for the imminent space launch project. These projects are concerned with “Propulsion” to develop rocket motors & propulsion related technology. A series of amateur hybrid motor powered rockets of increasing size & power that will lead directly to the space capable rocket.
