Lockheed Martin has announcements that it added the Spike Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) missile system to Oshkosh’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV).
The company performed the integration on behalf of the US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM).
The Spike NLOS multi-purpose electro-optical / infrared missile system can hit targets up to 32 km away.
The system can be integrated with a set of land, aviation or offshore platforms. It can be mounted on any vehicle with a standard palletised interface using a remote starter developed by Lockheed Martin.
The United States and six other international nations are currently using this battle-proven precision strike system.
Jerry Broad, vice president of Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Close Combat Systems, said: “The combination of Spike NLOS ‘long-range and precise strike capabilities with JLTV’s superior flexibility will take the next level of mobility and mission efficiency to our operators.
“Real-time video images of this advanced weapon system allow operators to change or interrupt missions while on their way to the target, giving users more options at critical moments.”
Lockheed Martin is a security and aerospace company based in Bethesda, Maryland. It employs approximately 114,000 people worldwide.
Last month, the company reported profits for the first quarter of 2022.
Lockheed Martin’s net sales totaled $ 15 billion during the three-month period ended March 27, 2022. They fell 8 percent year-over-year due to supply chain challenges and the impact of the resurgence of Covid-19 infections.
Last month, Lockheed Martin also received a contract to manufacture the THAAD weapons system for the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA).
