Lockheed Martin Wins Army Laser System Contract
May 2001
ORLANDO, Fla., May 25 -- Lockheed Martin Information Systems was awarded the US Army's Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement Systems XXI, or MILES XXI, task order to produce and field laser-based training systems for live force-on-force training.
    MILES XXI is a family of infantry, vehicle, antitank and independent target systems tested and proved in the field by the armed forces of numerous countries. The laser training system furnishes real-time feedback on the result of weapon engagements so players can duplicate the stress and lethality of actual combat in a variety of battle scenarios.
    The initial $13 million contract award for low rate initial production is the first phase of a multiyear production contract that has the potential to exceed $400 million, the company said. The current task order was awarded under the US Army's Simulation, Training and Instrumentation Command Omnibus Contract for live domain training.
