Successfully conducted a drop test of a newly developed Inflatable Atmospheric Decelerator (IAD) prototype in December 2021.
Founded just in October, Klaus’ aim is to make space transportation sustainable, available, and cost-efficient. The German company’s focus is on scalable cargo transport from space back to Earth without using any fuel.
The drop-test demonstrated reliable inflation of the IAD and acceptable structural loads at landing, the company said. The third-generation prototype and an attached miniaturised rocket first stage were dropped from 600 m from a helicopter. The activated IAD stabilized and decelerated the rocket stage for safe landing in water and successful recovery afterwards.
