Global security and aerospace company Lockheed Martin has received a $1.12 billion contract from the U.S. Army for Lot 16 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System rockets and associated equipment.
The contract calls for the production of more than 9,000 GMLRS Unitary and Alternative-Warhead rockets, over 2,000 Low-Cost Reduced-Range Practice Rockets and integrated logistics support for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and international customers.
Work will be performed at the Lockheed Martin facilities in Camden, Arkansas; Dallas and Lufkin, Texas; and Ocala, Florida, and is to be completed by September 2023.
“GMLRS’s versatile rounds provide proven capability, unmatched accuracy and are engineered for future needs in support of Joint All-Domain Operations (JADO),” said Gaylia Campbell, vice president of precision fires and combat maneuver systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
“GMLRS remains in high demand because it’s the right round for multiple types of missions,” she added. “Our focus remains on producing the combat-proven, cost-effective GMLRS to meet our customers’ needs.”
Lockheed Martin recently delivered the 50,000th GMLRS to the Army customer.
