US Army awards Lockheed Martin contract for ATACMS missiles

Lockheed Martin has received a $561.8 million production contract for Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missiles for the US Army and Foreign Military Sales (FMS) customers.

The two-year effort contract calls for new ATACMS rounds, as well as upgrading several previous-variant ATACMS as part of the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP III).

Both the SLEP and new ATACMS rounds will be produced at Lockheed Martin’s Precision Fires Production Center of Excellence in Camden, Arkansas. To meet the increased demand for ATACMS, Lockheed Martin is expanding its Camden manufacturing facilities to include the capability to produce ATACMS and other upcoming missiles.

Gaylia Campbell, Vice President of Precision Fires & Combat Maneuver Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, said: “The new-build ATACMS rounds under this contract will include sensor technology that provides the recently qualified Height-of-Burst capability,” said “This new feature will allow Soldiers to address area targets at depth on the battlefield.”
