Programs & Capabilities in India
C-130J - The IAF placed an order for the procurement of six C-130J transports for special operations in January 2008. The first of these aircraft was delivered ahead of schedule on December 16, 2010 and was inducted into IAF service with the 77 Squadron at Air Force Station Hindan on February 5, 2011. Lockheed Martin also provided turnkey infrastructure for these aircraft at Air Force Station Hindan, in less than 24 months, to meet the aircraft induction requirement ahead of schedule. The Indian MoD is considering its option to procure an additional six aircraft.
Javelin - The world's premier medium-range multi-purpose weapon system and shoulder-fired anti-tank guided missile system, Javelin takes the fight to the enemy. Javelin automatically guides itself to the target after launch, allowing the gunner to take cover and avoid counterfire. Soldiers or Marines can reposition immediately after firing, or reload to engage another threat. Using an arched top-attack profile, Javelin climbs above its target for improved visibility and then strikes where the armor is weakest. Javelin is combat proven in Afghanistan and Iraq.
GMLRS – The Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) supports the U.S. Army and Marine Corps with increased overmatch capabilities and reduced logistics footprint over current free-flight rockets. GMLRS is fired from the Multiple Launch Rocket System M270A1/B1 and the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System launchers. GMLRS is an international cooperative program among the United States, France, Germany, Italy and the United Kingdom.
DAGR – DAGR is a semi-active laser guidance kit that adapts 2.75-in. (70-mm) rockets to provide guided-rocket performance comparable to that of the precision-strike laser-guided HELLFIRE II missile. DAGR is being developed by Lockheed Martin to fill the gap between unguided rockets and the HELLFIRE II by providing a precision-strike air-to-ground weapon for close air support in urban environments that minimizes collateral damage.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) – Lockheed Martin is a leader in UAV technologies, ranging from micro-UAVs such as the Stalker or Desert Hawk III to larger platforms like the Reaper. We are actively pursuing UAV opportunities for both the military and civil markets in India.
- The Next-generation Desert Hawk III Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) has been deployed in the global war on terror by United Kingdom military forces. Combat proven Desert Hawk III continues to evolve to meet the changing demands of the warfighter and public security professionals.
- High Altitude Airship (HAA) - Lockheed Martin is developing a High Altitude Airship (HAA), an unmanned, un-tethered, lighter-than-air (LTA) vehicle operating autonomously in the stratosphere for sustained, ultra long endurance missions (up to a year), and suitable for multi-mission sensor operations. A sub-scale demonstrator known as the High Altitude Long Endurance-Demonstrator has been developed to prove the technologies for the HAA.
- Tethered Aerostat Systems - Lockheed Martin offers a full line of aerostat systems for domestic and international markets at envelope volumes ranging from 8K through 660K (660K= 660,000 cubic feet). The larger the aerostat, the greater the payload it can lift, and/or the higher the altitude at which it can operate. Aerostat systems are typically configured with a radar and/or electro-optical sensor to provide persistent, low-cost, wide-area surveillance, and can operate either as stand-alone sentries or as fully integrated nodes in C4I networks. The 420K model, equipped with a Lockheed Martin L-88 radar, is the baseline system for the U.S. Air Force's southern border Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS). The Army's Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS) deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan is based on Lockheed Martin's 74K model.
Aegis - The Aegis Combat System is the world’s most capable naval defense system and the sea-based element of the United States’ Ballistic Missile Defense System. The Aegis Combat System can simultaneously attack land targets, submarines and surface ships, while automatically implementing defenses to protect the fleet against aircraft and missiles.
SPY-I Family of Radars – The AN/SPY-1D and AN/SPY-1D(V), SPY-1F and SPY-1F(V) form today’s short list of the most capable and proven radars at sea. The unique single SPY-1 multi-function phased-array radar system replaces numerous conventional independent sensors and is designed for the most challenging environments and missions.
MK 41 Vertical Launching System – MK 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS) is the only launching system that can simultaneously accommodate the weapon control system and the missiles of every war fighting mission area—anti-aircraft, anti-surface, anti-submarine and land attack. The system is designed to accept any missile into any cell- a capability that provides unparalleled flexibility.
COMBATSS-21 – Component Based Total Ship System-21 is a combat management system based on an open architecture, component framework that enables low risk integration of proven elements. This system includes reuse of components from multiple proven systems. COMBATSS-21 provides an off-the-shelf combat management system starting point that meets open architecture and low risk and low cost objectives. The highly flexible architecture enables a "plug and fight" build approach to the combat management system and C2.
PAC-3 Missile - The ‘hit-to-kill’ PAC-3 Missile is the world’s most advanced, capable and powerful terminal air defense missile. It defeats the entire threat: tactical ballistic missiles (TBMs) carrying weapons of mass destruction, advanced cruise missiles and aircraft. In 2009, Taiwan became the fifth international customer for the PAC-3 Missile, joining The Netherlands, Germany, Japan and the United Arab Emirates in fielding the system.
Arrowhead – Arrowhead is the advanced electro-optical fire control system that Apache helicopter pilots use for safe flight in day, night or bad weather missions. It is the U.S. Army's Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-TADS/PNVS) system that is leading edge in its design. M-TADS/PNVS modular architecture accommodates a field-retrofit from TADS/PNVS to the new configuration on the Apache AH-64D. Lockheed Martin marked the delivery of the 1,000th M-TADS/PNVS in February 2011, with additional domestic and international deliveries scheduled through 2014.
Pathfinder - Pathfinder is the dedicated pilotage sensor system developed by Lockheed Martin for application on cargo and utility aircraft. It is an adaptation of the Modernized Pilot Night Vision Sensor (M-PNVS) currently fielded on the AH-64D Apache attack helicopter. Pathfinder provides cargo and utility aircraft aircrews with significantly increased situational awareness while reducing workloads during day/night operations in diminished visibility flight environments.
Sniper Advanced Targeting Pod - The combat-proven Sniper® Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP) provides critical long-range, positive identification of targets and possesses a video down link (VDL) to the widely used Rover ground receiver. The VDL relays high resolution streaming video to forward-deployed forces for non-traditional intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (NTISR) and rapid target coordination. Its advanced target identification capabilities enhance the warfighter’s ability to detect and analyze ground targets while dramatically decreasing the risks posed by enemy air defenses. Sniper ATP also provides essential NTISR using high-resolution, mid-wave FLIR and TV sensors, which operate in conjunction with a dual-mode laser, permitting eye-safe operation and precise geo-location in urban environments.
In addition to the above, Lockheed Martin is in the process of developing opportunities for the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS), Census and civilian air traffic control upgrade programs.
