Thrust Vector Control Actuation Systems

The Space Systems business provides Thrust Vector Control (TVC) Actuation Systems for existing missile platforms. The system is used to gimbal the rocket nozzle to provide precise steering for the missile platforms. The most current TVC system provided is for a ‘hit to kill’ kinetic energy system for missile defense in which the missile is guided and steered to hit incoming missiles and threats. This system is scalable and can be used for multiple platforms.
