THAADAerojet Rocketdyne has transported a new batch of booster motors and Divert and Attitude Control Systems to the Missile Defense Agency for the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense system.

THAAD is the land-based element of the U.S.’ Ballistic Missile Defense System designed to help protect the military, allied forces, critical infrastructure and citizens from ballistic missile threats.

The system comprises launchers, interceptors, radar, THAAD fire control and communication units and THAAD support equipment.
