General Dynamics has won a $36 million contract to support Saudi Arabia's guided missile warhead sections for the AGM-84H/K Stand-off Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response (SLAM-ER) weapon system.
General Dynamics is being awarded a $36 million contract for 21 forging sets and 660 warhead housings to support the production of guided missile warhead sections for the AGM-84H/K Stand-off Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response weapon system for the government of Saudi Arabia," the US Department of Defense said in a statement Friday.
The AGM-84H/K SLAM-ER is an advanced stand off precision-guided, air-launched cruise missile produced by Boeing. The missile is capable of attacking land and sea targets medium to long range (155 nautical miles/270 km maximum). The SLAM-ER relies on the Global Positioning System (GPS) and infrared imaging for its navigation and control, and it can strike both moving and stationary targets.
Work for the current contract is expected to be completed in March 2028.
