Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control received a USD331.8 million contract from the U.S. Army for Lot 11 production of GMLRS (Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System) rockets. The contract calls for the production of GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets and GMLRS Reduced-Range Practice Rockets for the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) and for Israel, Finland, Jordan and Singapore.

All production deliveries are anticipated to be completed by March 2018.

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons.

In combat operations, each GMLRS rocket is packaged in an MLRS launch pod and is fired from the Lockheed Martin HIMARS orM270 family of launchers. GMLRS was established as an international cooperative program among the U.S., France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom. Other international customers include Japan, Bahrain, Finland, Israel, Jordan, Singapore and the United Arab Emirates.
