Javelin aims for India
Javelin has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Tata Power Company to explore possible co-development and production of the Javelin anti-armour missile system. Javelin is a joint venture between Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.
As part of the LOI, the Javelin Joint Venture (JJV) and Tata’s Strategic Engineering Division (SED) will create a strategy to co-develop and produce the Javelin missile system and integrate platform mounts to meet Indian requirements. This will include ground combat vehicle, dismounted infantry and rotorcraft applications.
In addition to meeting the Indian government's 'Make in India' objectives, the LOI will establish a framework for future technological cooperation between JJV and Tata Power SED.
Rich Benton, JJV vice president and Javelin program director, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: ‘The combat-proven Javelin continues to fulfil a critical precision-strike role with our domestic and international partners. We look forward to working with Tata Power SED to maximise the versatility and lethality of Javelin on these new platforms.’
