With its 100% success rate, the flight proven Minotaur IV Space Launch Vehicle (SLV) provides an extremely cost-effective, reliable and capable space solution for U.S. Government-sponsored spacecraft. The combination of three government-furnished solid rocket stages, a commercial solid rocket upper stage, and Northrop Grumman’s flight-proven systems and processes provide an unmatched mix of value and performance. The integration of government motors with commercial boosters and state-of-the-art hardware is one of Northrop Grumman’s unique strengths from experience spanning several decades.
