Nick Green, CEO of PFi Aerospace, said, “Hypersonix’s innovative technology is impressive, and we are very happy to give them a hand fabricating and testing components for their fifth-generation Spartan scramjet engine and their green hydrogen fuel system that goes with it.
“We have in-house expertise and equipment at our Darra head office to support vibrant, innovative enterprises as they move from proof of concept to achieving significant scale.
David Waterhouse, Managing Director, of Hypersonix, said, “PFi’s expertise will boost our knowledge and capabilities and therefore shorten our time to market, reduce our risk and reduce our costs.
