Aerojet Rocketdyne is developing a propulsion technology as part of a cruise missile development partnership with Lockheed Martin, Military.com reported Monday.

The two companies partnered to build a missile system that will work to operate at a minimum speed of Mach 5 as the Department of Defense plans to invest in multiple hypersonic weapons programs.

Lockheed won a potential $928M contract from the U.S. Air Force in April to develop, integrate and test an aircraft-launched hypersonic conventional strike weapon.

Aerojet Rocketdyne produced supersonic combustion ramjet for the X-51A WaveRider plane that was built in 2013 through a collaboration between Boeing and the U.S. Air Force.
