The Lockheed Propulsion Company was a division of the Lockheed Aircraft Corporation located Redlands, California, from 1961 to 1975. It developed, tested and produced solid rocket motors and propellant used in military and NASA applications.

The site consists of approximately 400 acres that were leased from the City of Redlands. The predecessor Grand Central Rocket Company facility was used for the production, testing and disposal of solid rocket propellant used in rocket engines.

It's where the solid rocket booster for the D-21B TAGBOARD drone was developed.
