Raytheon-Lockheed JV Tests Javelin Missiles With Unmanned Ground Vehicle

Jeff Brody

A joint venture between Raytheon and Lockheed Martin has test-fired Javelin anti-tank missiles at a U.S. Army facility to demonstrate the weapon’s integration with station, launcher and a certain vehicle.

The team, also known as the Javelin JV, used a Kongsberg remote launcher to fire Javelin missiles from a Titan unmanned ground vehicle, Raytheon said Tuesday. QinetiQ North America and Milrem Robotics built the Titan vehicle. Alabama-based U.S. Army Redstone Test Center served as the venue for the demonstration.

“Javelin is ready to support emerging military robotic vehicle requirements,” said Sam Deneke, vice president of land warfare systems at Raytheon.

David Pantano, vice president at Javelin JV and Javelin program director at Lockheed Martin, said, “Javelin offers true fire-and-forget engagements to 4 kilometers in most operational conditions.” He added, “Once the launch command is issued, soldiers and vehicle assets like the UGV can reposition out of harm’s way.”

Javelin JV has manufactured more than 45,000 Javelin missiles and 12,000 launch units, with continuous system updates to address emerging needs. The U.S. military and allies have used the Javelin for over 5,000 engagements in Afghanistan and Iraq.
