Rocket Motor for Next-Gen Interceptor Delivered to Air Force Ahead of Schedule

Northrop Grumman Corporation delivered its Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) Stage Three solid rocket motor (SRM) to Arnold Air Force Base ahead of schedule for a full static fire test in early 2024.

The SRMs will help power the NGI booster, and data from the static test will help anchor NGI's solid rocket motors ballistic predictions, informing other SRM designs before entering qualification testing.

Northrop Grumman has rapidly moved beyond designs to hardware, motors and systems for its NGI solution to lower the risk for the Missile Defense Agency. The company will complete additional full-scale static test firings for each of its NGI SRMs in 2024 to provide comprehensive data to support its All-up Round design expected later this year.
