Excellent rocket engine test facility for your specific needs


Test support services

The market for launching small satellites is expanding, and the demand for developed rocket technology is increasing. There is a need to test and develop reusable rockets, which so far has not been possible in Europe.

An upgrade and modernization of Esrange are currently ongoing. SSC has together with the Swedish government invested in a testbed for the development of in-demand technologies, which includes reusable launch technology for small and large rockets, more environmentally friendly engines, test flights, and satellite technology. It will also be possible to use the facility to demonstrate new components for space applications.
