Innovation

Our innovative approach to rocket propulsion...

Streamlined Design

Firehawk’s simplified engine design accelerates production time and reduces costs.

Unprecedented Performance

Firehawk’s novel additive manufacturing techniques result in fuel grain topologies promoting higher regression rates and better combustion efficiency throughout the burn duration.

Rapid Customization

Advanced simulation and proven parametric design allows Firehawk to quickly tune engines to new requirements – case studies and sizing are completed in hours.

Remarkable Safety

Firehawk’s simple engines have Zero-TNT-equivalency. Virtually eliminating the risk of accidental detonation and making term storage easy.

Rapid Customization

Advanced simulation and proven parametric design give Firehawk the ability to quickly tune engines to new requirements – case studies and sizing are completed in hours.

Cost Reduction

The simplified construction of Firehawk’s hybrid rocket systems allows engines to be designed, developed, tested, and manufactured at 1/10th the cost of other suppliers.

Highly-Optimized Fuel

We use innovative 3D-printed fuel via patent-protected additive manufacturing for the modern warfighters of today and tomorrow.

Remarkable Safety

Our hybrid rocket systems have zero TNT equivalency – virtually eliminating the risk of accidental detonations.

Who We Serve

Defense Systems

New propulsion technology delivering cutting-edge capabilities that drive change in offensive and defensive mission profiles.

Commercial Space

Firehawk is raising the standard of space flight with next-gen hybrid rocket systems.

Firehawk's vision is to provide dual-use rocket systems that are versatile in their performance capabilities. Firehawk's processes are designed to afford high production cycles at affordable rates.

  • Near-Limitless Scalability 

    Firehawk uses patent-protected additive manufacturing technology to produce 3D-printed fuel grains customizable to any size and thrust profile for precise mission tailoring.  

  • Revolutionary Throttling Capabilities

    Firehawk's throttleable hybrid engines provide flexible support for new and existing mission profiles - including boost-glide-boost, deep throttling, shutdowns, and repeat restarts.

  • Reduced Development Lifecycle 

    The mechanical simplicity of the Firehawk hybrid rocket engine greatly reduces the time and cost of development and testing. As a result, our rocket systems can go from drawing board to early production in less than a year - whereas similarly sized bi-propellant engines traditionally require 5 to 7 years.

Firehawk uses patent-protected additive manufacturing technology to produce 3D-printed fuel grains customizable to any size and thrust profile for precise mission tailoring.

Revolutionary Throttling Capabilities

The Firehawk hybrid engine provides contemporary boost-to-glide-to-boost capabilities with specialized fuel designed to throttle down to 20 percent, turn off, and restart - significantly enhancing mission profiles.

Reduced Development Lifecycle

The mechanical simplicity of the Firehawk hybrid rocket engine greatly reduces the time and cost of development and testing. Our rocket systems can be produced in less than a year – whereas traditional engines of similar-sized liquid bi-propellant take 5-7 years.
