Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne receives propulsion system contract

  • 27-May-2010 06:52 EDT

Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne received a $20.3 million contract for the first phase to design, develop, and test a high-performance liquid upper-stage propulsion system that will support early intercept capabilities for the Missile Defense Agency. Under the contract, PWR will develop components and conduct risk-reduction tests on a liquid upper-stage propulsion system, which could be integrated into an advanced land-based interceptor to augment the Ballistic Missile Defense System. PWR will demonstrate the propulsion system's capability by conducting a static hot-fire test of the integrated system in simulated altitude conditions.
