USMC to get Naval Strike Missile

10th May 2019 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Raytheon will integrate the Naval Strike Missile (NSM) into the US Marine Corps' existing force structure, the company announced on 7 May.

The work will be carried out under a $47.59 million agreement with Marine Corps Systems Command in support of the 2018 National Defense Strategy and Commandant of the Marine Corps' modernisation efforts.   

Developed in partnership with Kongsberg, NSM is a long-range, precision strike missile that can detect and destroy land and sea targets at distances of up to 100 nautical miles away.

In 2018, Raytheon received a contract from the US Navy to deliver NSM as the navy's over-the-horizon weapon system for littoral combat ships and future frigates.
