​The Falcon Project Ltd has a static test bay on its 34-acre Westcott site; the test bay is licensed by the HSE for firings of solid-propellant rocket motors containing up to 800kg of solid-propellant or liquid-hybrid rockets with up to 1,000 litres of oxidiser. Falcon has fired solid propellant rockets with thrust levels of over 1 MN. With a 5,000 kg production limit on the mix building and a 65-gallon mixer, Falcon has the capability to cast large sounding rocket motors and possibly small launch vehicle boosters at Westcott. Falcon is also world-leading in Resonant Acoustic Mixing (RAM) of solid rocket propellants.​​​
