The end

After 3.5 years of investigating Retro Propulsion Assisted Landing Technologies, the RETALT project has come to an end. We had our final meeting with the EU the 31st of August 2022 in Brussels. It was interesting, exciting and insightful to see all these technologies come together, to understand their details and their interactions. You can find all our publications on Aerodynamics, Aerothermodynamics, GNC, Structures, Mechanisms, TVC and TPS on

On you also find the aerodynamic databases for the RETALT1 and RETALT2 configurations

Everything we published is OpenAccess so please take a look! 🙂

So that will be it from us for now, but as we wrote in our last post we will continue our work in the HorizonEurope project SALTO, and in the ESA Themis project. In these projects we will continue to pursue our vision of making vertical landing a reality in Europe.
