Use in Aviation

Rocket boosters used on aircraft are known as Jet-Assisted TakeOff (JATO) rockets.

Various missiles also use solid rocket boosters. Examples are;

  • 2K11 (SA-4) which uses SRBs as a first stage, and then a ramjet.
  • S-200 (SA-5) which uses SRBs as the first stage, followed by a liquid fuel rocket.
  • Surface launched versions of the turbojet powered Boeing Harpoon use an SRB.
