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.
