DALLAS (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $73.8 million contract from the US Army for Phase 2 of the Long Range Precision Fires (LRPF) program.

LRPF is the US Army's program envisioned to provide combatant commanders with next-generation, long-range precision fires with ranges up to 499 kilometers.

The missile will be capable of striking time-sensitive and area targets in a variety of conditions.

The LRPF Phase 2 program includes technology maturation and risk reduction for the development of a prototype LRPF missile system.

The prototype missile system includes a Launch Pod Missile Container and a fully integrated surface-to-surface guided missile that will be compatible with the Multiple Launch Rocket System MLRS M270A1 and M142 High Mobility Artillery Rocket System HIMARS launchers.

During the 36-month Phase 2 LRPF contract, Lockheed Martin will design, develop and fly multiple prototype missiles in anticipation of the Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) phase of the program, a Lockheed Martin statement said.

The initial LRPF Phase 1 risk-reduction contract successfully completed in May 2017.
