Blue Origin’s BE-4 rocket engine is the fastest way to end American dependence on the Russian-made RD-180 engine.
More than four years into development
BE-4 is already more than four years into development, fully funded, and will be flight qualified by 2017 – at least two years ahead of the alternative engine option. BE-4 component testing has already been underway for more than two years and full engine testing will begin soon.
Ready in 2019
BE-4 is the only engine that can fly by 2019, meeting the congressionally mandated deadline to eliminate dependence on Russian-built engines. The alternative engine option is multiple years behind and could not be integrated into a launch vehicle until at least 2021, extending our dependence on Russian engines well beyond 2019.
