Lockheed Martin was awarded a $364.6 million sales contract for Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) and Launching Assembly Service Life Extension program to US Army and Romania.

One bid was solicited with one bid received. Work is expected to be completed by March 26, 2020, the US department of defense said in a statement.

ATACMS is a long-range guided missile packaged in a MLRS look-alike launch pod and is fired from the MLRS Family of Launchers.

ATACMS is a 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.
