The propulsion test stand (BEAP) has been prepared for the P120C solid rocket development motor for a static firing test in July 2018.


The P120C, designed as boosters on Ariane 6 and as the first stage for Vega-C, is the largest single-unit, carbon-fibre solid-propellant motor ever built.


Its development relies on innovative technologies derived from the P80, Vega’s current first stage motor.
