Aerotech manufactures a range of reloadable rocket motors. Each motor has two distinct parts:

  • The outer casing or hardware. This is an aerospace-grade aluminium tube and supporting hardware (seals, closures, etc) which the rocket motor reload is inserted into. The casing is then installed in the rocket.
  • The rocket motor reload itself. This is the combustible part which is ignited and generates the thrust.

Reloadable rocket motors are more expensive to purchase but offer cheaper and more varied flights than single-use rocket motors.

More information on the required hardware is available on this page: Aerotech High-Power Motor Hardware.
