A.
The issue with the question is that you need to find a way to modify "a new type of jet engine" with a "that" clause. If you put "that" clause right after the above noun phrase, the verb will be too distant from the subject. "A" shows the best way around the issue - here "that" clause can only modify the noun phrase.
Other choices suffer at least from bad word choice (e.g. "have the capability of propelling") or parallelism issue (we need "propel ...or help")
