Lockheed Martin’s PrSM Proves Reliability

Lockheed Martin successfully tested its next-generation long-range missile designed for the U.S. Army's Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) programme at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. All objectives were achieved in the third and final flight demonstration as part of the Technology Maturation and Risk Reduction phase of the programme. The recent performance follows a highly accurate inaugural flight last December and equally successful March 10 test event.
 
PrSM was fired from Lockheed Martin's High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS) launcher and flew approximately 85 kilometres to the target area, culminating in an accurate and lethal warhead event.
 
Test objectives included confirming flight trajectory, range and accuracy from launch to warhead event, as well as warhead lethality, HIMARS launcher integration and overall missile performance.
 
Last month, the success of PrSM's test flights, programme execution and overall performance allowed Lockheed Martin to move to the next phase and continue maturation of the next-generation long-range precision fires solution for the U.S. Army.
 
The next-generation precision-strike, surface-to-surface weapon system will deliver enhanced capabilities for attacking, neutralising, suppressing and destroying targets at depth on the battlefield and gives field artillery units a new long-range capability while supporting brigade, division, corps, Army, theatre, Joint and Coalition forces.
 
For more than 40 years, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control has been the leading designer and manufacturer of long-range, surface-to-surface precision strike solutions.
