The solid rocket engine developed by Northrop Grumman and which Lockheed Martin will integrate into hypersonic weapon systems has been successfully tested.
The USA, which continues its work without slowing down within the scope of hypersonic weapon development, announced that the first test of the new solid rocket engine , which is planned to be used in such weapons, has been carried out.
With the first stage solid rocket engine (SRM) successfully passed the test, the Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) hypersonic rocket, which continues to be developed for the US Navy, and the Long Range Hypersonic Weapon-LRHW systems developed for the US Land Forces. It is stated that the relevant process will speed up.
Developed by Northrop Grumman and to be integrated into the weapon systems of Lockheed Martin, the engine was fired during the test and met all parameters. In the announcement made by the US Navy’s Strategic Systems Program (SSP), it was announced that the test met the targets.
Uniquely maneuverable hypersonic weapons fly at five times the speed of sound (Mach 5+) , emerging as a deterrent force against enemy air defense systems.
