The U.S. Army awarded the U.S. firm Raytheon an USD116.4 million contract to enter the technological maturation and risk reduction phase of the LRPF (Long-Range Precision Fires) program.

LRPF or DeepStrike as it is commercially designated, is a long-range surface-to-surface weapon that can defeat fixed land targets out to 499 km.

DeepStrike fires two missiles from a single weapons pod.
