Lockheed Martin has won a $497 million contract to supply the US Army with High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) Launchers and associated hardware.
The contract calls for the production and delivery of HIMARS launchers and associated equipment by 2022, the company said in a statement Tuesday.
HIMARS is a lightweight mobile launcher, transportable via C-130 and larger aircraft for rapid deployment, that fires Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) rockets and Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles. HIMARS consists of a launcher loader module and fire control system mounted on a five-ton truck chassis. A specialized armored cab provides additional protection to the three crew members that operate the system.
Russia's Roscosmos will export engines to power Lockheed Martin's Atlas III and Atlas V launch vehicles, with the latter currently the only US-made launch vehicle capable of sending heavy payloads into orbit. Roscosmos subsidiary Energomash is preparing to deliver three more RD-180 engines for use with Atlas-5 launch vehicles, the company said in a statement Friday
