Thrust Vector Control

Woodward designs and develops electro-mechanical TVC (Thrust Vector Control) actuation systems for rocket nozzle and similar applications. Our systems have been produced and flight tested for:

  • High altitude air defense missiles
    • Tactical guided missiles
    • Launch vehicles
    • Target missiles
    • Maneuvering augmentation systems

    Woodward TVC systems operate in unique and challenging application environments. We design TVC systems for the demanding configuration, temperature, vibration, and operational parameters of both military and commercial missiles. Our successful flight tests have demonstrated high-angle thrust vector control and a high nozzle slew rate.

    Our industry's leading prime contractors look to Woodward for Affordable Precision™ TVC solutions on their next generation guided missile systems.
