The engine that
The engine that changes everything.
A truly versatile propulsion system – SABRE is an air-breathing rocket engine that can propel an aircraft from zero to five times the speed of sound in the atmosphere and 25 times the speed of sound for space access. Highly scalable, this pioneering breakthrough boasts a huge range of operation with the potential to redefine what’s possible in the world of powered flight.

With a clear ground test and development programme.
There are three core building blocks to SABRE, the precooler, the engine core and the thrust chamber. Each of these systems can be developed and validated using ground based demonstrations, which saves cost and time relative to flight test, a design feature that benefited the development of the propeller and jet engine.
We are demonstrating each of these independently. The high temperature test of the precooler took place in 2019.
