Aerojet Rocketdyne has concluded two hot-fire tests of air-launch motors at the Air Force Research Laboratory, under the firm’s advanced tactical booster program. The company said Monday it designed the solid rocket motors to simulate extreme cold- and hot-soak launch conditions. The tested motors demonstrated the capacity to accelerate vehicles under extreme operational temperatures. Aerojet […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has completed hot-fire tests of a RL10 engine thrust chamber assembly that was built using three-dimensional printing technology. The company said Wednesday the latest test series follows an initial demonstration of a 3D-printed copper alloy thrust chamber and nickel alloy main injector last year. Eileen Drake, president and CEO of Aerojet Rocketdyne, said hot-fire tests […] More
Sacramento, Calif.-based firm Aerojet Rocketdyne has tested a new in-space engine that will potentially be used for future robotic operations on the moon. Aerojet Rocketdyne said Wednesday the ISE-100 engine accumulated 75 individual tests, 774 pulses and over 500 seconds of hot-fire time during the evaluation period. ISE-100 will now enter the certification phase, which […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne will help the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency develop and test a propulsion system as part of the Advanced Full Range Engine program that aims to realize reusable hydrocarbon propulsion technologies. AFRE looks to develop a propulsion system that could operate at up to hypersonic speed in an effort to deploy responsive hypersonic aircraft for […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has tested a third RS-25 engine flight controller the company developed to support the launch of a future NASA heavy-lift rocket. The RS-25 flight controller is designed to monitor the health of a rocket engine using real-time adjustments to combustion pressures, turbopump speeds and other configurations such as engine thrust and propellant mixture […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has tested a second flight engine controller for its RS-25 rocket engine at NASA‘s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi. NASA will use the Aerojet Rocketdyne-made engine technology to power the Space Launch System as part of a planned unmanned space mission, the company said Tuesday. Eileen Drake, president and CEO of Aerojet Rocketdyne, said the RS-25 development and flight engines logged more than 6,800 […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne will consolidate and modernize additional facilities over the next two years under the second phase of a company-wide improvement effort. Aerojet Rocketdyne said Monday it aims to merge operations in California and Virginia as well as expand its presence in Alabama with the construction of a new manufacturing facility in the next two years as part of the firm’s […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has conducted hot-fire acceptance tests on eight auxiliary engines to be used on the inaugural flight of NASA‘s Orion spacecraft and Space Launch System next year. The company said Wednesday it oversees the development of auxiliary engines for the European Space Agency’s European Service Module that will provide air and water, temperature control, power and propulsion capacity for Orion crew […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has provided a payload of six lithium-ion batteries to the International Space Station in an effort to keep the power supply needed to help astronauts continue their research aboard the station. The lithium-ion batteries incorporate safety features such as voltage, temperature and cell-overcharge monitoring and will replace 12 nickel hydrogen batteries at ISS, Aerojet Rocketdyne […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has tested a second RS-25 engine technology the company developed for NASA‘s Space Launch System. The company said Friday it conducted the evaluation at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, where the 0528 engine was switched on for 650 seconds. Aerojet Rocketdyne restarted the RS-25 engine testing process in 2015 to check the upgraded controllers’ compliance with the requirements of SLS […] More
Aerojet Rocketdyne has completed another milestone in the company's AR1 rocket engine development program following completion of preburner tests at NASA's Stennis Space Center. The tests aimed to verify design parameters of the preburner injector built for Aerojet Rocketdyne's new engine technology, the company said Friday. Aerojet Rocketdyne announced its milestone plan for AR1 engine in 2014 […] More
