Lockheed Martin and Aerojet have achieved a technological milestone in the joint air-to-ground missile (JAGM) programme.

The team successfully completed full temperature range testing and validation to support a single rocket motor solution for all JAGM fixed-wing and rotary-wing platforms.

The test was conducted in Camden, Arkansas, US, as part of a series of cold temperature missile motor firings.

The rocket motor was manufactured to a tactical configuration using a composite motor case conditioned to -65°F.

The process replicated the highly stressful thermal requirements of a fixed-wing launch at altitude.

The Aerojet rocket motor offers a single-motor solution for JAGM’s challenging fixed-wing, rotary-wing and unmanned aerial vehicle requirements.
