MAGNA, Utah – September 10, 2023 – Northrop Grumman Corporation (NYSE: NOC) played a key role in the successful launch of a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket. Carried out today, this launch was made possible with the help of five Graphite Epoxy Motor (GEM 63) solid fuel thrusters manufactured by Northrop Grumman. These thrusters managed to generate some 1.85 million pounds of thrust, a remarkable figure.
