Edotek is a technical consultancy specialising in the chemical and materials problems which can arise in rocket propulsion systems. By definition, those materials with find use as liquid propellants are highly energetic. Put another way, they are extremely reactive and this reactivity can have adverse and complex effects on all the materials that they come in to contact with, particularly the materials used to construct long-life spacecraft propulsion systems.
When the need exists to store the propellants for long periods of time and still ensure reliable operation of the propulsion systems, considerable expertise is required to achieve this with confidence. Edotek has been involved with work on liquid propellants since the 1970’s. We have done work for the UK Ministry of Defence, the European Space Agency and the US Army, as well as commercial clients across Europe and the United States.
