DALLAS (BNS): Lockheed Martin has received a $471 million contract from the US Army for Lot 12 production of Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS).

The contract calls for the production of GMLRS Alternative Warhead rockets, GMLRS Unitary rockets, Reduced-Range Practice Rockets (RRPRs) and integrated logistics support for the US Army and Foreign Military Sales, the company announced on July 12.

Work will be performed at the Lockheed Martin facilities in Camden, Arkansas, and Dallas.

All production deliveries are anticipated to be completed by the summer of 2019.

GMLRS is an all-weather rocket designed for fast deployment that delivers precision strike beyond the reach of most conventional weapons, according to Lockheed.
