The U.S. Army has chosen General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) as the prime contractor for its Digital Guided Missile (DGM) prototype program.
“GA-EMS has been selected as a prime contractor for the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Aviation and Missile Center’s (AvMC) Digital Guided Missile (DGM) prototype program under the Aviation and Missile Technology Consortium,” the company announced July 20.
GA-EMS will develop advanced missile conceptual designs in direct support of the Multi-Domain Operations (MDO) for the Army Modernization Campaign. The company will conduct required analysis and design to develop new missile system prototype concepts for the Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF), Next Generation Combat Vehicle (NGCV), Future Vertical Lift (FVL), and Air and Missile Defense (AMD) Cross Functional Teams (CFTs) and their missions. The DGM prototype program intends to augment critical warfighter capabilities that have potential to provide increased lethality and overmatch by 2028.
