Lockheed Martin bags ELGTR order
Lockheed Martin has been awarded a $26.5 million contract by the US Navy for the production of Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTR), the company announced on 3 August.
The contract includes a base year order with options for four additional years.
The contract extends ELGTR production into late 2019, and calls for Lockheed Martin to deliver ELGTRs and refurbish reusable shipping containers.
The ELGTR emulates the envelope, flight characteristics and guidance system of the Paveway II laser-guided bomb, allowing aircrew to practice delivery tactics in a real-mission environment and experience actual weapon characteristics. The ELGTR is compatible with the F-16, AV-8B, F/A-18 and other international aircraft platforms.
