Aerojet Rocketdyne, Inc. Key Developments
Aerojet Rocketdyne Collaborate with Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation for Solar Field in Arkansas
Feb 19 15
Aerojet Rocketdyne and Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation have signed agreements with Silicon Ranch Corporation, a renewable energy provider, to build solar field in Arkansas. The 12-megawatt project will be constructed in Highland Industrial Park, located in the city of East Camden, and will occupy approximately 100 acres. It will serve to provide predictable energy costs as well as contribute to ongoing clean energy development and economic growth in the region. Under its agreement, Aerojet Rocketdyne will purchase solar power for the 1,200-acre site it leases in East Camden. Silicon Ranch Corporation is expected to complete the project in late 2015. Once completed, the plant will provide clean supplemental daytime power to Aerojet Rocketdyne and will be capable of generating enough electricity to power the equivalent of 2,400 single-family homes. Excess solar energy will be released to AECC and integrated into the cooperative's diverse generation portfolio.

Aerojet Rocketdyne to Provide Electric Propulsion for Orbital Sciences Corporation's GEOStar-3 Satellites
Feb 4 15
Aerojet Rocketdyne received a contract from Orbital Sciences Corporation to deliver XR-5 electric propulsion subsystems over the next three years for the next generation GEOStar-3 commercial geostationary orbit communications satellite platform. Orbital's GEOStar satellites are used to provide a variety of communications services including direct-to-home TV broadcasting, broadband connectivity, cable program distribution, business data network capacity, regional mobile communications and similar services. Each Aerojet Rocketdyne XR-5 subsystem for a GEOStar-3 spacecraft consists of 5-kilowatt class Hall thrusters with integral flow regulation valves, Power Processing Units with built-in Thruster Selection Units and all associated electrical harnessing. The XR-5 Hall system is the power Hall thruster system ever flown, and each XR-5 Hall thruster incorporates Aerojet Rocketdyne's patented zero-erosion design, which enables the extremely long-life capability required to raise the satellite from where it is placed into orbit by the launch vehicle to its final destination in geostationary orbit.
