Lockheed Martin Nears Completion of Standalone Launcher Production; Jennifer Houston-Manchester Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting event

Lockheed Martin BlueLockheed Martin is set to complete the production of its standalone launcher in October that is built to launch MBDA‘s common anti-air modular missile.

The three-cell ExLS launcher is scheduled for qualification testing in late 2016, Lockheed Martin said Tuesday.

Jennifer Houston-Manchester, Lockheed Martin ExLS engineering program manager, said the ExLS works to “reuse already qualified missile components“¦then adapt them to integrate into [an] MK 41 VLS using a host variant, or in a three-cell standalone variant for platforms without VLS.“

Lockheed Martin and MBDA test-fired a CAMM from the MK 41 VLS using an ExLS host variant in September 2013.
