​​Reaction Engines Logo


​Reaction Engines Ltd (REL) i​​​​s a UK company based in Culham, Oxfordshire, formed in 1989 to develop the technologies needed for an advanced combined cycle air-breathing rocket engine class called SABRE (Synergetic Air-Breathing Rocket Engine), that will enable aircraft to operate at speeds of up to five times the speed of sound or fly directly into Earth orbit.

REL has a number of specialist manufacturing and test facilities that can be made available to external users subject to usual commercial terms. In particular they see the high-vacuum brazing furnace as something that is unique in the UK with potential applications in other fields. REL‘s two subsidiary companies Brite Precision and Crossman Engineering are potentially able to support external customers in addition to their REL work.​​​​
