27 June 2018
Space News reports that Aerojet Rocketdyne and the US Air Force have revised an “existing agreement supporting development of a new large rocket engine to include work on an updated version of an upper stage engine.” Aerojet announced Monday that it had signed a modification of its “Rocket Propulsion System other transaction authority agreement with the Air Force to incorporate work on the RL10C-X engine.” The RL10C-X is an updated version of the RL10 engine “currently used on the Atlas 5 and Delta 4 launch vehicles.” The new engine takes advantage of new technology including additive manufacturing to “lower production costs while maintaining performance and reliability.” The modified agreement continues to support the work on the AR1 engine.
