Northrop Grumman Corp. supported last month’s flight testing of the U.S. Air Force“™s Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missile weapon system, according to a company statement.

“Each operational test we conduct is critical to ensuring the safety and effectiveness of the Minuteman III ICBM weapons system, and they are especially critical when testing new sub-systems that will maintain the viability of the system through 2030,“ said Tony Spehar, vice president and program manager at Northrop Grumman ICBM systems.

During the test called “Glory Trip 206GM,“ the missile traveled approximately 4,800 miles in 30 minutes from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., to the Ronald Reagan Test Site in the Kwajalein Atoll in the western chain of the Marshall Islands.

The tests were the first of a refurbished MK21 arming and fuzing assembly to demonstrate and support assessment of the weapon system“™s accuracy, availability and reliability.

Northrop led the ICBM team that included Boeing, Lockheed Martin, ATK and more than 20 other companies.
