Description: The GMLRS (Guided MLRS) is an international program in partnership between the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France and Italy to produce a guided rocket for the M270 artillery system as well as follow-on multiple launch rocket systems such as the M270A1 and HIMARS. The US Army is expected to receive the first GMLRS by 2005 and the European partners from 2006 onward. The XM30 rocket will feature an extended range, all-weather capability and an INS/GPS based guidance system. Additionally, small canards on the rocket nose will provide maneuverability and ultimately high accuracy. The guided/maneuverable GMLRS rockets will enhance rocket artillery units with a precision strike capability. Lockheed-Martin estimated that average GMLRS can destroy the same target than MLRS rockets but employing 20 percent of rockets thus minimizing collateral damage.

The Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System Plus (GMLRS+) is a new version of the GMLRS Unitary artillery rocket equipped with a semi-active laser (SAL) seeker to engage laser designated opportunity targets. The GMLRS+ program is being funded by Lockheed Martin. The first test firing was carried out successfully in December 2010 with more tests due in 2011.
