Lockheed Martin has demonstrated a long-range, precision-strike test missile at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., in support of the U.S. Army.
The company said Tuesday it test-launched the Precision Strike Missile via the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System, or HIMARS, and met all requirements.
The test sought to exhibit PrSM’s range, accuracy, flight trajectory, HIMARS integration, lethality and general performance. The missile’s flight path was around 112 miles to the target area.
Gaylia Campbell, vice president of precision fires and combat maneuver systems at Lockheed Martin's missiles and fire control business, said that the test flight showed the PrSM’s precision and critical capabilities.
The Army intends to use PrSM for a variety of operation types such as attack, suppression and neutralization.
The demonstration marks the missile’s second test launch and follows an initial flight that took place in December.
