Lockheed Martin has received a $1.8 billion contract in December for the production and delivery of Patriot Advanced Capability-3 (PAC-3) and PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (PAC-3 MSE) interceptors.

The contract includes PAC-3 and PAC-3 MSE interceptors, launcher modification kits and associated equipment for the US Army and foreign military sales.

The family of PAC-3 missiles are high-velocity interceptors developed to counter tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft.

The PAC-3 MSE uses a two-pulse solid rocket motor that increases altitude and range to defend against evolving threats.
