Reading time ( words)
Northrop Grumman Corporation’s Next Generation Interceptor (NGI) team recently began manufacturing integral throat inlets for NGI solid rocket motors. This milestone marks the start of manufacturing of the key components of the NGI program. Produced at the company’s Bacchus facility in Magna, this gear utilizes many of Northrop Grumman’s advanced testing, inspection and development capabilities, including specialized fiber weaving capability (pictured). This technology enables rapid development, prototyping and production for NGI to achieve engine performance supporting this critical mission.
With over 60 years of mission-proven experience, Northrop Grumman, along with strategic partner Raytheon Technologies, has the technical expertise and operational manufacturing and test facilities necessary to enable low-risk, high-performance propulsion solutions at support of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) NGI program.
