Aerojet Rocketdyne, an L3Harris Technologies company, is providing the advanced propulsion system for the hypersonic solution that Lockheed Martin is developing for the U.S. Navy, known as Hypersonic Air-Launched Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare Weapon (HALO).
According to the Navy, HALO is envisioned to be a long-range, carrier-based, air-launched weapon system.
“We are proud to partner with Lockheed Martin on this important capability, supporting the Navy in its mission to keep the seas open and free,” said Ross Niebergall, President, Aerojet Rocketdyne. “By powering weapons that reach farther, faster, we enable warfighters to remain on the offensive, driving the pace of battle and maintaining the advantage.”
Aerojet Rocketdyne provides a broad range of products to support hypersonics, including air-breathing engines, solid rocket motor boosters, warheads and missile defense technologies.
