North American Rockwell Corporation
In 1967, North American Aviation merged with the Rockwell Standard Corporation, naming John L. Atwood president and chief executive officer of the newly formed North American Rockwell Corporation, now known as Rockwell International.

Under Atwood's direction, the company produced significant contributions to the aerospace industry including: the Apollo command and service modules, which carried men to the moon nine times; the S-II second stage of the Saturn V lunar launch vehicle; the F-1 and J-2 rocket engines of Saturn V and the guidance and flight control systems for the Minuteman intercontinental missiles. In addition, Atwood was also instrumental in the development of the Space Shuttle.

Atwood retired from his position as president of Rockwell International in 1970, remaining on the board until 1977. He maintained his interest in the aerospace industry, and he continued to be a valued consultant to the aircraft corporation until his death.
