Lockheed receives Lot 13 GMLRS contract
Lockheed Martin has received a $828 million contract from the US Army for Lot 13 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) rockets and associated equipment, the company announced on 7 May.
The contract will see the company produce GMLRS Alternative Warhead (AW) rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets, Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (RRPRs) and provide integrated logistics support for the US Army.
GMLRS rounds for a number of international customers will also be supplied under the contract.
GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons. The GMLRS AW was developed to service area targets without the effects of unexploded ordinance. The RRPR allow users to train with realistic, full-motored rockets with limited flight range.
