General Dynamics - GMLRS Warheads

General Dynamics : 27 July, 2007  (Company News)
General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems, a business unit of General Dynamics, has been awarded a $7.5 million contract by Lockheed Martin for the production of warheads for the U.S. Army's Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS)-Unitary.
The GMLRS is an all-weather precision-guided Rocket with increased accuracy that reduces the number of rockets required to eliminate a target. The system is equipped with a 200-pound class fragmenting unitary warhead designed and developed by General Dynamics and has a range of more than 60 km.

The GMLRS Unitary warhead's combination of Insensitive Munitions features and high near-field lethality fulfills the Army's need for a soldier-safe, low collateral damage, affordable, long-range precision artillery munition.

'General Dynamics has a long legacy of fielding world-class warhead capability and we are proud to be able to make a vital contribution to the success and safety of the U.S. warfighter with this warhead for the GMLRS program,' said Richard P. Davitt, vice president of Precision Systems for General Dynamics ordnance and Tactical Systems.

Engineering and program management will be performed in Niceville, FL.
