Experts on igniters and gas generators


APP develops and manufactures ignition systems for space launchers. Those launchers are invaluable, both for science as well as for our daily lives. Navigation, weather forecasts, telecom and disaster control can hardly be done without satellites. Rockets bring satellites to their destination: in orbit around the earth.

From the start, APP has transferred space technology to other industries. More than ever, the company invests in new product development using her knowledge and experience in space. For example: a fast gas generator to prevent dust explosions, or applications to extinguish fire instead of lighting it.
