Lockheed Martin was awarded a $161 million contract for the production of 150 Army Tactical Guided Missile and Launching Assemblies’ Service Life Extension Program.

Work is expected to be complete by Feb. 3, 2020, the US department of defense said in a statement Thursday.

Army Tactical Missile System Block IA Unitary (ATACMS) is a long-range conventional surface-to-surface artillery weapon system capable of striking targets well beyond the range of existing Army cannons, rockets and other missiles. ATACMS missiles are fired from the MLRS M270 and M270A1 weapons platform. The ATACMS Block I Missile was very successful in Operation Desert Storm.
