A premier light infantry surveillance and anti-armor weapon system, Javelin provides the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and numerous international customers a fire-and-forget, medium-range missile. It’s easy to use and offers enhanced situational awareness and demonstrated lethality against a wide array of targets, such as armored vehicles, bunkers and caves.
Javelin is combat proven and has a greater than 94 percent reliability rate. It can be deployed from multiple platforms and used in all weather, day or night operations.
Scheduled to be in inventory until 2050, the program has developed and demonstrated remote launchers for ground vehicles as well.
