Lockheed Martin has received funding from the US Army Contracting Command to increase the production rate of the Joint Air-to-Ground Missile, the US Department of Defense announced on 12 December.

The $15.5 million contract modification will see the company increase production of the missile from 50 to 100 missiles per month.

JAGM is a multi-sensor air-to-ground missile that is compatible with rotary wing and fixed wing platforms. The multimode seeker combines improved semi-active laser and millimeter wave radar sensors providing precision strike and fire-and-forget capability against stationary and moving land and maritime targets in adverse weather and obscured battlefield conditions.

Work will run through March 2022.
