We work in a 300 sqm storage building, called Horizontal Assembly Building (HAB), placed on an abandoned but yet historic shipyard
in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The areas around HAB provides us with enough space to test our own rocket engines, and being
situated close to the harbour of Copenhagen makes it easy for us to go into sea for our sea launch operation.
We have no administration or technical boards to approve our work, so we move very fast from idea to
construction. Everything we build is tested until we believe it will do. Then we (attempt to) fly it!
Some of our main design drivers are:
- Keep as much work in-house as possible
- Choose mechanical solutions over electrical
- Use "ordinary" materials for cheaper and faster production
- Cut away (anything), instead of adding
