Description: The Extensible Launching System (ExLS) is an affordable and flexible vertical launching system intended for a wide variety of surface ships equipped or not with vertical launching system (VLS). The ExLS designed by Lockheed Martin maximizes the use of existing hardware and electronics to reduce the integration costs of weapons by more than 50 percent. Installed below deck, the new launcher significantly reduces the integration costs for individual weapons by serving as an adapter between the canister of a missile or munition and its qualified electronics, and the ship's existing weapons system. The ExLS standalone variant is ideally suited for smaller vessel classes which are not compatible with VLS systems such as Mk 41 or Mk 57. The ExLS VLS family is compatible with a wide range of missiles, rockets and munitions via an specific adapter.
