Lockheed Martin has won a $227 million contract for lot 10 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Unitary for US Army, Bahrain and UAE.
"GMLRS is a combat proven precision-strike system," Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control said in a statement Wednesday. "We are confident that the new GMLRS Alternative Warhead will also provide reliable, highly accurate capability for our domestic and international customers,"
The contract includes the first order of GMLRS Alternative Warhead production..
GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. GMLRS Unitary rockets greatly exceed the required combat reliability rate and have established a reputation for affordability. The Alternative Warhead is designed to engage the same target set and achieve the same area-effects requirement as the old MLRS sub-munition warheads, but without the lingering danger of unexploded ordnance. MLRS rockets with sub-munition warheads ended production approximately seven years ago.
In combat operations, each GMLRS rocket is packaged in an MLRS launch pod and is fired from the Lockheed Martin HIMARS or M270 family of launchers.
