This paper discusses design, test results and preliminary numerical rebuilding of the GOX-GCH4 igniter for a subscale experimental "breadboard" (SSBB) LOX/Methane rocket engine in the framework of the HYPROB-BREAD project. The igniter architecture takes into account different literature efforts and has been selected with the objective of achieving good performance with low cost. CFD, FEM and system simulations have been performed in order to demonstrate the validity of the design. The main results from the first experimental campaign as well as a preliminary numerical rebuilding analysis are shown.
