Lockheed Wins $24M in Navy Contracts for Laser-Guided Training Rounds

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
ARCHBALD, Pa., June 9, 2015 — The U.S. Navy has awarded Lockheed Martin Corp. $24.2 million in contracts to produce enhanced laser-guided training rounds (ELGTR), a cost-effective alternative to using operational laser-guided bombs (LGB) during training.

ELGTRs emulate the flight characteristics of the Paveway II laser-guided weapon systems and present pilots with the same information they would see in an actual mission. They are used with F/A-18, AV-8B, F-16 and other aircraft.

The award represents the third order under the 2013 ELGTR contract. As part of the contract, Lockheed will deliver ELGTRs and associated technical data, as well as refurbish U.S. government shipping containers.
