Lockheed Martin has received a $364 million production contract for Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles for the US Army and foreign military sales, the company announced on 25 June.

The programme will allow military services to upgrade their existing Block 1 surface-to-surface missiles with new technology and double the range, while extending the missile's shelf life by more than ten years.

Each ATACMS missile is packed in a guided missile launch assembly pod and is fired from the Multiple Launch Rocket System family of launchers.

The missiles covered under this contract are scheduled to be delivered by January 2021.
