Nammo Space

Starting in the 1990s as a spin-off from Nammo’s military rocket propulsion activities, our space activities have developed into a small, yet highly competitive part of the company. Our space activities are focused on Propulsion Systems and fluidic and mechanical components in support of In-Space Propulsion Systems and Launchers.

In addition to their design and manufacturing capabilities, all locations supporting Nammo’s test activities have available extensive test benches and equipment in order to perform in-house qualification testing before delivery to the customer. The Raufoss test facilities in particular are dedicated to Green Propulsion using Hydrogen Peroxide.

Testing facilities include:

  • Solid Propulsion up to 100kN
  • Hybrid Propulsion up to 200kN
  • Mono- and bipropellant thrusters
  • Hydrazine, MMH, MON, H2O2, LMP-103S
  • High altitude facilities
  • Class 8 Cleanrooms and class 5 flow benches
