LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Aerojet Rocketdyne announced plans to expand its Southern Arkansas facility near Camden, where the company manufactures solid rocket motors and warheads critical to national defense.

Aerojet Rocketdyne’s currently envisioned expansion plans include investing in new infrastructure and creating more than 140 new jobs over the next three years. The growth would bring total employment to approximately 900 employees at the facility. Working in partnership with Arkansas Economic Development Commission (AEDC), Calhoun and Ouachita Counties, more than $50 million dollars will be invested in the expansion.

"This expansion enables us to increase the volume of solid rocket motors we produce for tactical and missile defense systems used by America’s warfighters," said Aerojet Rocketdyne CEO and President Eileen Drake. "It also provides Aerojet Rocketdyne with the capability to build large solid rocket motors in Camden for our nation’s strategic defense requirements."

Large solid rocket motors will provide propulsion for the Air Force’s Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD), a next-generation system which will replace aging Minuteman III intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Aerojet Rocketdyne recently relocated its Solid Rocket Motor Center of Excellence from Sacramento, California, to Camden, resulting in growth for the Arkansas plant in Camden, which already produces more than 75,000 solid rocket motors annually. The company has had a presence in Arkansas since 1979.

MARINETTE, Wis. -- The Lockheed Martin-led industry team officially laid the keel for the U.S. Navy's 23rd Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), the future USS Cooperstown, in a ceremony held at Fincantieri Marinette Marine in Marinette, Wisconsin.

Ellen R. Tillapaugh, Mayor of the Village of Cooperstown, New York, completed the time-honored tradition and authenticated the keel by welding her initials onto a steel plate that will be placed in the ship.

The Lockheed Martin and Fincantieri Marinette Marine team is currently in full-rate production of the Freedom-variant of the LCS, and has delivered five ships to the U.S. Navy to date. The future USS Cooperstown is one of eight ships in various stages of construction at Fincantieri Marinette Marine.

LCS 23 will be the first vessel named for Cooperstown. Her name honors the veterans who are members of the National Baseball Hall of Fame located in the namesake city. These 64 men served in conflicts ranging from the Civil War through the Korean War.
