Lockheed Martin received a $194 million contract from the U.S. Army Aviation & Missile Command for production of the Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS). Work will be conducted at the company’s facilities in Dallas and Horizon City, TX, with completion expected by the second quarter of 2010. The contract includes the ATACMS Quick Reaction Unitary and Block IA Missiles. ATACMS is a long-range missile artillery round designed specifically for destroying high-priority targets at ranges of up to 300 km. Able to deliver a wide variety of warhead options, it can operate in all climate and light conditions while remaining above the range of most conventional weapons.
