Aerojet Rocketdyne breaks ground on solid rocket motor development facility.


Aerojet Rocketdyne officials have announced they joined Arkansas State and local leaders to break ground on the latest facility in a continuing expansion of the company's Camden, Arkansas, solid rocket motor center, the company said.

The facility will support several large solid rocket motor opportunities, including the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent program, hypersonics and missile defense targets.

The 17,000 square-foot Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) facility, set to open in spring 2020, will expand a decades-long capability of solid rocket motor production in Camden. The facility was specifically designed to serve as the developmental gateway to future Aerojet Rocketdyne large solid rocket motor product opportunities, to include the Ground Based Strategic Deterrent program, hypersonics and missile defense targets.

The expansion represents the latest chapter of Aerojet Rocketdyne's ongoing partnership with the Arkansas Economic Development Commission, Calhoun County and the Ouachita Partnership for Economic Development.
