Lockheed Martin and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) have signed a five-year agreement for the agency to purchase Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTRs) on behalf of member countries.

The follow-on agreement is in effect through 2021 and provides for the purchase of up to 3,000 ELGTRs a year for the next five years, the company said in a statement Wednesday.

"Lockheed Martin’s partnership with NSPA will provide NATO member countries with live-fire training for employment of Paveway II Laser Guided Bombs," said Jason Golden, ELGTR program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.

Lockheed Martin has produced more than 160,000 advanced training rounds for the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and international customers. ELGTR is compatible with F-16, F/A-18, AV-8B and other international aircraft platforms.
