The Defense Department explained that the contract is for the Patriot Advanced Capability-3 [PAC-3] Missile Support for recapitalization of the enhanced launcher electronic system, field missile activities and unscheduled maintenance, the company announced Monday.

The PAC-3 missile is designed to destroy tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft. It is a high velocity interceptor that defeats incoming targets by direct impact, also known as Hit-to-Kill, according to Lockheed Martin.
