The Raytheon/Lockheed Martin JV producing the Javelin ATGM is providing additional lifecycle contractor support services for US military users and 14 FMS customers, under a new $19.54 million contract modification from the US Army.

Work will be performed in Tucson, Arizona, with an estimated completion date of 28 February 2023.

Support for the following FMS operators of Javelin are included in the contract modification: Australia, Estonia, Georgia, Indonesia, Ireland, Jordan, Latvia, Lithuania, New Zealand, Oman, Poland, Taiwan, Ukraine and the UAE.
