Our Role

Aerojet Rocketdyne, an L3Harris Technologies company, components support several variations of the Standard Missile. The Mk 72 booster and Mk 104 dual-thrust rocket motor provide first and second stage propulsion. Aerojet Rocketdyne’s Throttling Divert and Attitude Control System (TDACS) helps maneuver the kinetic warhead of some of the SM-3 variants into the target for the final hit-to-kill impact.

Aerojet Rocketdyne incorporates throttling solid rocket technology advancements into the TDACS design to provide increased mission flexibility to the warfighter while maintaining the safety features of solid propellant.
