Lockheed Martin has been awarded $110 million contract for the gray wolf science and technology demonstration effort. 

The contract provides for the design, development, manufacture, and testing of prototype-affordable cruise missiles to advance networked collaborative operations technologies for defeat of enemy integrated air defense systems, US department of defense said in a statement Monday.

 Work is expected to be completed by Dec. 17, 2022.  Fiscal 2018 research and development funds in the amount of $2.8 million are being obligated at the time of award. 

The Federal Business Opportunities had issued bids in March this year. This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is for the Air Force Research Laboratory Munitions Directorate (AFRL/RW) to design, develop, manufacture, and test prototype affordable sub-sonic tactical cruise missiles for AFRL Gray Wolf Cruise Missile Science and Technology Demonstration Program. 

The objective of this effort is to conduct Research and Development to advance and mature affordable tactical cruise missiles employed in networked, collaborative operations in support of defeating enemy Integrated Air Defense System (IADS) in highly contested environments.  The program is a spiral development effort, using open architectures and a modular design to enable testing of multiple variant full-scale prototypes.
