An Australian research consortium has successfully tested a next generation propulsion system that could enable high-speed flight and space launch services.

The team’s rotating detonation engine, or RDE, is a major technical achievement and an Australian first.

It was designed by RMIT University engineers and is being developed by a consortium led by DefendTex, with researchers from RMIT, University of Sydney and Universität der Bundeswehr in Germany.

Following this successful engine test, which brings Australian space launch capability a step closer, we speak with the research team –

• Travis Reddy, Chief Executive Officer, DefendTex Pty Ltd

• Dr. Adrian Pudsey, Responsive Access to Space Technical Lead, RMIT University

• Associate Professor Matthew Cleary, Deputy Head (Research) of the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering, The University of Sydney

This project would not have been possible without Cooperative Research Centre project funding.
