: 02 May, 2008  (New Product)
BAE Systems has received a $31.6 million contract to manufacture Mk 14 Mod 2 Tomahawk missile launching canisters for the U.S. Navy. The canisters will house, safely transport and enable loading of the U.S. Navy's Tactical Tomahawk Missile for firing from the Mk 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS).
“BAE Systems has been supplying the U.S. Navy with missile launching canisters for battle-proven systems for more than two decades,” said Gary Tatge, BAE Systems’ Launching Systems Director. “These canisters significantly enhance mission performance by providing superior capability for our U.S. Navy fighting force.'

BAE Systems provides a wide range of launching system canisters for the Mk 41 VLS. Each canister has a common external envelope to support system launcher module interfaces, while internal mechanical and electrical components are tailored to specific missile shapes and interface requirements. BAE Systems is the U.S. Navy's exclusive design agent and worldwide supplier of Mk 41 VLS launch canisters.

The Mk 14 canisters are used on the CG-47 Ticonderoga class and the DDG-51 Arleigh Burke class ships. The order could potentially include $9.5 million for additional canisters by July 2008. Work will be performed in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
