AR-22 Ground Test Demonstration

Aerojet Rocketdyne successfully fired its AR-22 booster rocket engine an unprecedented 10 times in 240 hours at NASA Stennis Space Center, June 26- July 6, 2018. This test demonstrates the feasibility of rapidly recycling the AR-22 engine to enable a reusable launch vehicle capable of high-tempo, aircraft-like flight operations. The test sequence was carried out as part of the collaboration between Boeing and the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) for the Phantom Express Experimental Spaceplane program.
