Lockheed Martin received a $23.1 million contract from the U.S. Navy for follow-on production of Enhanced Laser-Guided Training Rounds (ELGTRs) to support the Paveway™ II Laser-Guided Bomb (LGB) weapons training. The award extends ELGTR production into late 2020.
“ELGTR is the only proven low-cost, guided trainer for Paveway II Laser-Guided Bombs around the world,” said Jason Golden, ELGTR program manager at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “With more than 167,000 LGTR/ELGTRs delivered since the 1990s, this capability has prepared air and ground crews for challenging tactical mission environments while maintaining critical war reserve assets.”
Lockheed also manufactures ELGTRs for the U.S. Marine Corps and international customers. The ELGTRs are compatible with F-16, F/A-18, AV-8B and various international aircraft platforms.
