PrSM progresses to Enhanced Technical Maturation and Risk

7th October 2020 - 14:00 GMT | by Tim Fish in Auckland

​The next set of Precision Strike Missile tests will include side-by-side firing at a target more than 500km away; the US Army has a forecast baseline requirement for up to 2,400 missiles.

Development of the Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) for the US Army is moving into its next stage following the completion of three tests.

PrSM aims to replace the deep-strike surface-to-surface MGM-140 Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) with a new system providing increased ranges of more than 500km.

This is allowed after the US withdrew from the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty in 2019 that restricted the ranges of land-based ballistic and cruise missiles and missile launchers.

Shephard understands that prime contractor Lockheed Martin has completed the Technical Maturation and Risk (TMRR) phase is now engaged in the Enhanced TMRR (ETMRR)
