Aerojet Rocketdyne Achieves Significant Air Force Demonstration and Validation Milestone with Successful Hot-Fire Test
"This hot-fire test successfully demonstrated the increased capabilities of an advanced, controllable solid rocket motor system," said
Post boost propulsion systems are a critical element of strategic and missile defense systems for final payload positioning and deployment. The Post Boost Study A program was aimed at identifying emerging propulsion concepts using a trade study approach and selecting high potential candidates for demonstration of technical maturity.
"This program allowed us to evaluate various advanced technology propulsion systems and select one of the most promising - a controllable
solid rocket motor system for hardware demonstration testing," said Vice President of Defense Advanced Programs
