Lockheed Martin has won a $321 million contract for research and development in support of the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) integration and test phase for the US Navy.
The integration and test phase completes all remaining hardware and software detailed design; systemically retiring any open risks; building and testing missile test articles to verify compliance with capability requirements; and preparing for production and/or deployment.
It will also include systemically retiring any open risks, building and testing missile test articles to verify capability requirements compliance and preparing for production and/or deployment.
This phase will also entail completing full system integration and incorporating an affordable and executable LRASM manufacturing process into the existing Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile -- Extended Range production process.
The contract work will also include examining and defining the logistics footprint, designing for producibility, ensuring affordability, critical anti-tamper and cybersecurity measures and demonstrating system integration, interoperability, safety and utility.
Work is expected to complete by August 2019.
