European Space Propulsion

On July 9, 2012, Aerojet Rocketdyne, a US leader in space propulsion, announced it was in the final stages of forming a European subsidiary to serve European space industry needs. The new company, European Space Propulsion (ESP) has been formed in Northern Ireland to bring state-of-the art rocket propulsion to Europe and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Aerojet Rocketdyne.

ESP provides a vehicle for new product developments, as well as taking advantage of heritage products and services for in-space propulsion. It will use indigenous manufacturing and engineering talent to produce in-space thrusters and propulsion systems – it is a true UK company.
