Firehawk is making a form of chemical rocket engine for space exploration, space commerce, and the U.S. Department of Defense. Unlike liquid fueled rockets, Firehawk uses proprietary engine fuel grains, which are 3D printed from a proprietary polymeric/metal fuel formulation. In addition to being a safer and more economically efficient fuel source, it's exhaust is environmentally benign.
Because of the fuel grain's advanced safety and efficiency, Firehawk's rocket engines require only 10 to 12 parts.
Rocket fuel technology startup Firehawk Aerospace has added $1.2 million to its existing seed financing, bringing the full amount invested in the round to $2.5 million. The new tranche comes from Harlow Capital Management, a Dallas-based firm run by Colby Harlow, who will join Firehawk's board of directors as part of the deal.
Firehawk now intends to use its seed funding to test its technology in operational conditions and at the kind of scale required for commercialization, and to build out its partnerships and client list.
