Aerojet Rocketdyne, Inc. Company Profile
They say, "It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure this out." But in the case of Aerojet Rocketdyne (formerly Aerojet-General Corp.), it actually did. Founded by a professor and his colleagues at Caltech, the company develops and makes propulsion systems for defense and space applications, including tactical missiles and space launch vehicles. It is the largest provider of propulsion systems in the US, serving the likes of the US Army, the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), and NASA. Aerojet Rocketdyne is a key subsidiary of GenCorp. In 2013 GenCorp acquired Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne and merged it with Aerojet-General to form Aerojet Rocketdyne.
