Lockheed-Raytheon missile on target

The Javelin, a compact, lightweight missile designed for one-soldier operations and produced via a partnership between Raytheon and Bethesda’s Lockheed Martin, was recently demonstrated successfully for an international customer that has expressed interest in purchasing vehicles integrated with Javelin, the companies announced.  Javelin Joint Venture fired a missile from a remote weapon station integrated onto a wheeled vehicle at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama. The missile hit a tank target from 1,000 meters.  “The international customer already uses the combat-proven Javelin for dismounted troops, but this test demonstrated the Javelin’s versatility and how easily it can be integrated with the vehicle to enhance mission capability,” said Richard Benton, Javelin Joint Venture vice president and Javelin senior manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, via a statement. Javelin is used by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.
