On 22 June 2011, ESA and the Joint Propulsion Team – a consortium of Astrium GmbH, Avio SpA and Snecma (Safran Group), signed a €60 million contract at the Paris Air & Space Show to continue the development of the High-Thrust Engine, the main engine to power Europe’s Next-Generation Launcher.
The contract signing moves the High-Thrust Engine to the next phase: the engine’s preliminary design reviews.
