Heat protection for Ariane 6 rockets “Made in Austria”

"For example, typical protection of a satellite is usually in the range of -200 to +200 degrees Celsius, and the thermal insulation has to withstand this. With respect to a rocket, we are talking about withstanding heat of up to 1,500 degrees Celsius. This is a temperature at which iron already begins to melt", explains Andreas Buhl, Managing Director of RUAG Space Austria.

The production of heat protection for rockets is already underway. The first delivery of thermal insulation is scheduled to be sent to the Ariane Group at the end of 2019. As of 2020 the thermal insulation is to be mounted on the rockets, which will be subsequently launched into outer space from Europe's Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. RUAG Space has been manufacturing thermal insulation for satellites for about 30 years.
