MEMS rocket array is one of the most promising propulsion systems for micro satellite. Its recent development researches have reached close to practical devices. This paper reviews the performances and maturities of recently-build MEMS rockets. Four MEMS rocket projects are treated; LAAS-CNRS, France, Tohoku University, Japan, National University of Singapore, and Kyushu University, Japan. Their design, size, propellant, etc. are explained. The smallest MEMS rocket of Kyushu University using DDNP propellant and PDMS micro tank is also introduced.
