 In Land, Defense, U.S. Army, USA

The U.S. Army award­ed American rocket and mis­sile propul­sion man­u­fac­tur­er, Aerojet Rocketdyne, with a $76,8 mil­lion con­tract mod­i­fi­ca­tion to sup­port of Stinger mis­sile system.

The “fire-and-forget” Stinger mis­sile employs a pas­sive infrared seeker to home in on its air­borne target. The Stinger mis­sile is launched by a small launch motor that pushes it a safe dis­tance from the oper­a­tor before engag­ing the main flight motor, both solid pro­pel­lant rocket motors pro­vid­ed by Aerojet Rocketdyne.

Aerojet Rocketdyne of Camden has been award­ed a mod­i­fi­ca­tion (P00005) to con­tract W31P4Q-18-D-0027 for the pro­cure­ment of Stinger flight motors. The Department of Defense said Aerojet Rocketdyne’s bid was the only one solicit­ed and received.

Raytheon builds the Stinger mis­sile system, and Aerojet Rocketdyne is the flight motor sub­con­trac­tor. The esti­mat­ed com­ple­tion date is Sept. 30, 2021. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Redstone Arsenal, Alabama, is the con­tract­ing activ­i­ty.
