Lockheed Martin Delivers First Modernized TACMS Missile
New TACMS production line in Arkansas marks major milestone

DALLAS, Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has manufactured and delivered the first modernized Tactical Missile System (TACMS) missile to the U.S. Army from its Camden, Arkansas, production facility.

As part of the U.S. Army's TACMS Service Life Extension Program inventory refurbishment effort, the modernized missile includes updated guidance electronics and added capability to defeat area targets without leaving behind unexploded ordnance. This first Camden-produced missile will be flight-tested later this year at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

The TACMS (formerly ATACMS) modernization process disassembles and demilitarizes previous-generation submunition warheads, which do not comply with the 2018 international treaty, replacing them with new unitary warheads. The modernization process also resets the missile's 20+ year shelf life, effectively creating a new missile for a fraction of a new missile's cost.

"These new modifications enhance TACMS' capability and significantly extend its useful life," said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "These upgrades ensure TACMS is ready to meet our customers' needs now and into the future."

Additionally, the TACMS platform provides flexibility to quickly integrate novel payloads and new capabilities as required by the warfighter.

With decades of unsurpassed performance and production excellence, TACMS is the only long-range tactical surface-to-surface missile ever employed by the U.S. Army in combat. TACMS missiles can be fired from the entire family of MLRS launchers, including the lightweight High-Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS).

Lockheed Martin's First Modernized TACMS Missile Successfully Engages Target with Extreme Accuracy
Nov 8, 2016

DALLAS, Nov. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin's (NYSE: LMT) first modernized Tactical Missile System (TACMS) missile completed a successful first flight test at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.
TACMS brings pinpoint accuracy at ranges up to 300 kilometers.

The missile was launched from a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launcher at a target area more than 130 kilometers away, precisely hitting the target with a proximity sensor-enabled detonation. All test objectives were achieved.

"This was a successful test that proves that the new Modernized TACMS retains the extreme precision this product line is known for," said Scott Greene, vice president of Precision Fires/Combat Maneuver Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "With Modernized TACMS, we are taking existing missiles from inventory and giving our customer an essentially new missile."

As part of the U.S. Army's TACMS Service Life Extension Program inventory refurbishment effort, the modernized missile includes updated guidance electronics, and added capability to defeat area targets without leaving behind unexploded ordnance. The missile was produced at the Lockheed Martin Precision Fires Production Center of Excellence in Camden, Arkansas.

The TACMS (formerly ATACMS) modernization process disassembles and demilitarizes previous-generation submunition warheads that do not comply with the international Convention on Cluster Munitions, replacing them with new unitary warheads. The modernization process also resets the missile's 10+ year shelf life.

Additionally, the TACMS platform provides flexibility to quickly integrate novel payloads and new capabilities as required by the warfighter.

With unsurpassed performance and an unwavering commitment to production excellence, TACMS is the only long-range tactical surface-to-surface missile ever employed by the U.S. Army in combat. TACMS missiles can be fired from the entire family of MLRS launchers, including the lightweight HIMARS.



Lockheed Martin's Modernized TACMS Missile Repeats Success in Second Flight Test

DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) successfully tested a second modernized Tactical Missile System (TACMS) missile in a flight at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The test follows closely behind the successful first flight of a modernized TACMS in late October. Five more flight tests are planned in coming months for the modernized TACMS program.

Launched from a High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launcher at a target approximately 85 kilometers away, the modernized TACMS precisely engaged and destroyed the target, demonstrating the missile's Proximity Sensor Height of Burst enhancement. An additional feature of the new modernized TACMS is the ability to deliver increased lethality against imprecisely located targets.

"This second successful test in a row further validates the capability enhancements we are making to the TACMS round," said Scott Greene, vice president of Precision Fires/Combat Maneuver Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "We are absolutely confident that when called upon, these modernized TACMS will provide an unmatched level of precision and lethality to our warfighters."

As part of the U.S. Army's TACMS Service Life Extension Program inventory refurbishment effort, the modernized missile includes new state-of-the-art guidance electronics and added capability to defeat area targets without leaving behind unexploded ordnance. The TACMS modernization process disassembles and demilitarizes TACMS Block 1 and 1A submunition warheads, which do not comply with the Convention on Cluster Munitions of 2008, replacing them with new unitary warheads. The modernization process also resets the missile's 10+ year shelf life.

In December of 2014, Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Army signed a $74 million contract to take existing TACMS missiles from inventory and modernize them. The missile was produced at Lockheed Martin's Precision Fires Production Center of Excellence in Camden, Arkansas.

The TACMS platform provides flexibility to quickly integrate novel payloads and new capabilities, meeting future demands now as required by the warfighter.

With unsurpassed performance and an unwavering commitment to production excellence, TACMS is the only long-range tactical surface-to-surface missile ever employed by the U.S. Army in combat. TACMS missiles can be fired from the entire family of MLRS launchers.
