    PRYOR. Mr. President, today, I wish to recognize the dedicated employees at Aerojet Rocketdyne's production facility in Camden, AR. The employees, nearly 525 strong, recently achieved the milestone shipment of their 2,000th PAC-3 solid rocket motor and 400,000th PAC-3 attitude control motor to Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Army.

    Aerojet Rocketdyne is recognized around the globe as an aerospace and defense leader proudly serving the missile, space propulsion, and armaments markets. Since 1998, the PAC-3 SRM and ACM rocket motors manufactured in Camden have been a noteworthy component of Aerojet Rocketdyne's industry-leading tactical propulsion portfolio.

    The PAC-3 missile is a high-velocity interceptor, and it is the world's most advanced, capable, and powerful terminal air defense missile when deployed in a Patriot battery. It is capable of defeating the entire threat of tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and aircraft. The solid rocket motors produced in Camden are a vital component to the PAC-3 rocket receiving 100 percent effective rate during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

    I am proud to recognize the dedicated and hard-working employees of Aerojet Rocketdyne for their outstanding achievement. This milestone is a reflection of their continued dedication to ensuring our men and women in uniform have the resources they need to carry out their missions effectively and efficiently. With this accomplishment and their future endeavors, the employees of Aerojet Rocketdyne in Camden, AR have earned our most sincere appreciation for a job well done. ____________________
