The NetFires LLC, a limited liability company established by Lockheed-Martin and
Raytheon, has been awarded a $1.1 billion contract for System Development and
Demonstration for the Non Line-of-Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS), previously
known as the NetFires.
The NLOS-LS is a family of artillery missiles fired from a vertical launcher
that can be deployed by ground platforms throughout the operations theater to
quickly engage an enemy.
The US Department of Defense (DoD) contract will cover design and development of
the Loitering Attack Missile (LAM), the Precision Attack Missile (PAM), and the
autonomous Container Launch Unit (CLU) for a six-year period. LAM and PAM
missiles will benefit from common components and equipment use resulting in
lower development, production, and maintenance costs.
The LAM missiles will search wide areas for potential targets and relay its
location back to US Army commanders, who can then direct PAM missiles, the LAM
itself or other assets to the desired target. The NLOS-LS will be deployed by
the US Army Future Combat Systems Units.
The Lockheed-Martin Corporation is in charge of the LAM development and Raytheon
will be responsible for the PAM missile. The NLOS-LS CLU is intended for
integration on a wide range of ground platforms with the FCS vehicles as the
