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.
"With this expansion, we will be able to increase the volume of solid rocket motors we produce for tactical and missile defense systems used by America's warfighters," said Drake, a former Army pilot.
Larger fuel stores also allow a ramjet to sustain high speed during flight, making it harder to shoot down than a solid rocket motor, which exhausts its fuel shortly after launch and then rapidly slows down, he said.
Nammo, a technology-driven company in Norway, makes ammunition and rocket motors for the aerospace and defence sectors.
"The data from today and from our three development motor tests, along with information we have collected on hundreds of predecessor motors over the past three decades, confirms this is the most capable and powerful solid rocket motor ever designed."
For the dome shape part of the rocket motor casing calculating stress is divided into circumferential and axial stresses.
The weapon is easily assembled by removing the warhead, attaching the guidance section to the rocket motor using existing threads, and then remounting the warhead to the guidance section.
