PAYERNE, Switzerland (S3 PR) — Aerospace company Swiss Space Systems – S3 and Bauman Moscow State Technical University (BMSTU) have announced today the signing of their partnership.

The most prestigious Russian engineering institute joins the very selective group of international technical advisors to S3. This new partnership between the Russian university and the aerospace company will enable BMSTU students to have on-site training at S3 within the scope of their collocation at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, and to pursue their research work in relations to S3 propulsion systems, one of the key elements for the SOAR shuttle and its expendable upper stage.
