About the Engine Test Stand

Development of LRA's engine test stand began alongside the Taurus hybrid engine prototype. Composed of a horizontal test bed and a series of fluid control panels, the engine test stand will be instrument to LRA's upcoming hot-fire test of the Taurus engine and future hybrid engine prototypes. Currently, the LRA is in the process of installing various hardware components at the test site at UT Austin's J.J. Pickle Research Campus.
