Aerojet has successfully tested a bipropellant liquid rocket divert thrusters, which will form part of the US Missile Defense Agency’s ballistic missile defence system.

The early intercept divert and attitude control system (DACS) is being developed as part of the Missile Defense Agency’s ballistic missile defence system intended to rapidly respond to the threat of ballistic missiles.

Under a risk reduction effort, both altitude and sea level tests were conducted for the early intercept DACS.

Aerojet supports the next generation of sea and land-based US missile defence capabilities by providing reliable, low-risk propulsion technologies.
