The Flame Trench (TFT) is a unique group of British and American amateur and professionals working across engineering and science in fields such as high power rocketry, active stabilisation, scientific instrument development, space mission design and more.

Our flagship projects are a small Pocketqube satellite, which we’re hoping to launch in the early 2020’s, and a high power experimental rocket that utilises proprietary advanced control and avionics systems.

We have a popular shop that sells a range of products including stickers, prototyping PCBs and camera aeroshells for modelling rocketry.
