Lockheed Martin has won a U.S. Army contract to provide M299 All Up Launchers and spare parts support for the branch and international customers.
The contract has a total value of $25.9 million.
The M299 Launcher provides an affordable multi-platform, multi-mission capability for the HELLFIRE and Joint Air-to-Ground Missile. It has a digital design so it can interface with a variety of platforms, and the unique ability to recognize and fire all HELLFIRE variants and JAGM in any sequence plausible.
Lockheed Martin produces the electronic components for the M299 Launcher at its facilities in Ocala, Florida, and Archbald, Pennsylvania. Marvin Engineering in Inglewood, California, performs the final assembly and test.
Under this contract, M299 Launcher activities will extend in Ocala, Archbald and Inglewood until 2025.
“The M299 Launcher is the go-to solution for multiple aircraft and ground platforms when it comes to defending, deterring, and defeating current and future threats,” said Joey Drake, Air-to-Ground Missile Systems program director.
The M299 Launcher has been successfully integrated on to the AH-64D, AH-64E, Seahawk, Cobra and Tigre platforms for U.S. and international customers. There have been 6,000 M299 Launchers delivered and launchers are in-service with 29 customers.
