Lockheed Martin has won $23.1 million contract from the U.S. Navy for follow-on production of Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTRs) to support the service’s Paveway II Laser Guided Bomb (LGB) weapons training.
The award exercises the initial option of the contract negotiated in 2017 and extends ELGTR production into late 2020, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
ELGTR is a live-fire training solution for warfighters. It provides realistic LGB employment practice for GBU-10/12/16 (2,000-lb/500-lb/1,000-lb) configurations at a fraction of the cost of tactical inventory.
Lockheed Martin manufactures ELGTRs for the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and international customers. The ELGTR is compatible with F-16, F/A-18, AV-8B and other international aircraft platforms. Ongoing development efforts are focused on ELGTR compatibility with additional platforms to further expand the user community.
The ELGTR provides Circular Error Probability (CEP) (within 4 meters) and CE90 (within 9 meters) performance against airborne-lased tactical target environments.
