WASHINGTON – The U.S. Army awarded multiple contract options worth $520.814 million on Oct. 21 and Nov. 2, 2022, to Lockheed Martin for Guided Multiple Launch Rocket Systems in order to replenish GMLRS provided from DoD inventory to Ukraine.
“These awards demonstrate the significant impact GMLRS are having on the battlefield as a vital combat capability for our international partners,” Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment William A. LaPlante said. “They are great examples of contracting approaches we are using to more rapidly accelerate award timelines and ultimately deliver capability.”
The GMLRS procurement is part of the Ukraine Supplemental appropriation.
“This award enables us to replenish our own inventory while providing critical capabilities for our allies and international partners,” said Douglas R. Bush, the Army’s Assistant Secretary for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology. “We remain committed to getting things on contract as quickly as possible to ensure our stocks are rapidly replenished.”
This effort was led by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space, in partnership with components across the DoD.
