• PLD SPACE's Propulsion Test Facilities

    The place where Research and Development projects to reach space come true.

  • Bringing rocket science down to Earth

PLD SPACE offers its propulsion test stand for liquid rocket engine testing and characterization. This unique platform in Europe provides a range of new opportunities for the European Space Industry to boost and to demonstrate space propulsion-related technologies.

Close to everywhere,
even from SPACE

  • Your Technology Partner

PLD SPACE is your partner for new technology developments in real propulsion hardware and a new cross-cutting demonstration technologies for launchers and spacecraft.

We offer a vertical test and stand located at Teruel Airport for static engine test, turbopumps, engine characterization, electronics and Thrust Vector Control solutions.
