Lockheed Martin awarded JAGM contract

20th August 2012 - 16:48 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has announced that it has received a contract from the US Army to extend the Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) Technology Development programme. The company announced the contract, worth $64 million, 17 August 2012.

According to Lockheed Martin, the 27-month extended Technology Development programme will include the design, test and demonstration phases for the JAGM guidance section. The JAGM guidance section includes the seeker, dome and housing.

Lockheed Martin has already successfully designed, tested and fielded missiles with both JAGM seeker modes; the precision-strike semi-active laser on HELLFIRE and the all-weather fire-and-forget millimeter wave on LONGBOW.

Lockheed Martin’s common JAGM solution provides an affordable, low-risk system that meets all army, navy and marine corps rotary-wing, fixed-wing and unmanned aerial system (UAS) requirements, with high modularity for rapid response to future requirements.
