Former X Prize competitors, DeLeon Industries and ARCA, are partners. “DeLeon Industries worked a lot on life support systems, full pressure suits and cockpit design. ARCA has a little experience in this field, so it is more than necessary to work with DeLeon Industries. We have a lot of work to do together.”, said Dumitru Popescu, ARCA’s Chairman.

Three fuel tanks for the STABILO and ORIZONT vehicles are under construction. The work at this first series will be finished next week. Another series of three will be ready at the end of this month. Even that the start of the propulsion tests was announced in January, probably the tests will begin in February. We changed a little bit our work strategy. We wanted to finish all the necessary fuel tanks for this year in January.
