Frank St. John Comments on Lockheed Joint Missile Win

Lockheed Martin has won a 27-month development contract to work on a new air-to-ground missile system for the U.S. Army, the company announced Monday.

The company will work to design, test and demonstrate the missile’s guidance section including the seeker, dome and housing.

For this program, Lockheed will apply its previous experience on the Hellfire, Longbow and Javelin programs, said Frank St. John, vice president of tactical missiles and combat maneuver systems.

Raytheon is reportedly leading a competing team for a contract to produce the missile, a joint effort between the Army, Navy and Marine Corps.

Lockheed has designed, tested and fielded missiles with both JAGM seeker modes such as the precision-strike semi-active laser on Hellfire and the all-weather fire-and-forget millimeter wave on the Longbow missile.
