The French company HyPrSpace has secured an investment of 35 million euros to carry out the launch of its first Baguette One rocket .

Under the project called “Agile Access to Space”, HyPrSpace has obtained this significant funding to take a rocket with a name inspired by bread to space. The French government will contribute 60% of this funding through its France 2030 initiative.

Previously, HyPrSpace had won, in collaboration with Latitude, a public competition dedicated to commercial mini and micro launchers. Although Spain and Germany present more notable proposals in this sector, the situation has taken a more serious turn on the other side of the Pyrenees, despite the humorous touch in the name of the rocket.

The French consortium’s main objectives are to carry out the first flight of the Baguette One suborbital rocket and finalize the design of the OB-1 orbital launcher (which stands for Orbital Baguette One). The leading company in this project is HyPrSpace, based in Bordeaux, in collaboration with CT Ingénierie and Telespazio France.

HyPrSpace is in charge of developing a hybrid propulsion system for both rockets. CT Ingénierie will focus on systems engineering and launcher design, while Telespazio will be responsible for operating the rocket from manufacturing to placing the payloads in orbit.

It should be noted that in September of last year, HyPrSpace generated controversy by announcing that it had successfully carried out a test of its Joker MK2 hybrid engine, which has an aerospike-type nozzle.

Regarding competition, the Spanish company PLD Space has been successful with its first suborbital flight using the Miura 1 and is now concentrating on the development of the Miura 5 orbital launcher, which will have a height of 36 meters and the capacity to transport a ton of cargo, with plans to launch it in 2025.

For its part, France’s HyPrSpace has yet to certify its hybrid propulsion technology before its first suborbital flight, with expectations of achieving this in the first quarter of 2026. The Baguette One, with a height of just 7 meters, will be its first test, and its successor, the OB-1, will measure between 11 and 16 meters, with a load capacity of 200 to 250 Kg, being reusable like the Miura.
