In May of 1964, Lockheed Propulsion Company's rocket motor was successfully fired, and then re-fired on September 30th (Rohr Corporation 1964 Annual Report, p. 11).
In 1967, the Space Products Division's activity in large solid rocket motor development programs slowed down but had "reasonable prospects for participation in new programs" in the the proposal stage." Rohr fabricated and delivered to the Aerojet-General Corporation a nozzle for the largest rocket motor developed by the Air Force (Rohr Corporation 1967 Annual Report, p. 3, 9).
Rohr manufactured solid rocket motor components for the Titan III and Space shuttle launch rockets (Rohr, 1976, p. 1).

X-33 single-stage-to-orbit reusable launch vehicle advanced metallic thermal protection system - "The basic design of this system, which is one of the advanced technologies featured on Lockheed Martin's subscale X-33 demonstrator vehicle, is that of a “lifting body,” and it has a rugged metallic thermal protection system that acts as a heat shield during reentry into Earth's atmosphere." (Strauss, Barry; Hulewicz, Jeff. Advanced Materials & Processes v. 151 (May 1997) p. 55-6)
