International Space Propulsion Ltd (ISP) was formed in October 2001 to provide knowledge-based engineering services to the space propulsion industry, primarily within Europe. ISP is a consultancy with particular expertise in all aspects of space propulsion, performing propulsion system design, development, procurement, and production and test of modules, or subsystems. Utilising a large network of propulsion partners, ISP's extended capabilities include: system engineering, materials testing and launch services; propellant procurement, analysis, test and shipping; and ground support equipment (GSE).
ISP founded European Astrotech Ltd (EAL), see section 3.17, as a wholly owned subsidiary in 2007, to perform chemistry and other propellant-based services, testing and equipment maintenance and to manage a new facility on behalf of the ISP Group. ISP divested its interests in EAL in 2010.
ISP is able to support the design and implementation of space propulsion systems in a number of key areas.
ISP’s consultancy expertise covers all aspects of space propulsion system design, manufacture, test and support services. Although ISP does not have facilities of its own, the Company maintains a network of relevant facilities and capabilities to fit any requirement and will offer to support any Customer who requires a complete test package, with additional interface, preparation and management services.
