Solid Rocket Motor Factory in a Box

The Air Force Research Lab  introduces a concept for the production of jet engines for aircraft missiles - in a box. According to AFRL, methods are needed to accelerate technology transfer and minimize barriers of entry to commercial firms. The "Production on Demand' program seeks to advance four manufacturing technologies and develop an AFRL native, rapid, and flexible solid rocket motor (SRM) prototyping capability.
