Long Range Precision Fires
Double combat power at a fraction of the cost
Preserving peace and stability around the world calls for an “overmatch,” an affordable solution that offers greater range, precision and combat power than that of potential adversaries. Raytheon is answering the call with a Long-Range Precision Fires missile, a new, longer-range weapon based on advanced technologies that will allow the U.S. Army to field twice as many missiles on its existing launch vehicles.
The launcher will fire two missiles from a single weapons pod, an innovative and differentiated design that slashes the cost to the customer and increases combat power. The new missile also flies farther, packs more punch and incorporates a superior guidance system than the current weapon, which is rapidly becoming obsolete.
Raytheon’s Long-Range Precision Fires weapon is designed to integrate with the M270 MLRS and M142 HIMARS rocket launchers. The new missile's range and speed will allow Army combat units to engage targets over vast geographic spaces in high-threat environments.
As the next generation of surface-to-surface weapons for the Army, the Long-Range Precision Fires weapon will:
- Offer a low-cost solution.
- Double the firepower.
- Defeat fixed land targets at 300-499 kilometers.
- Improve lethality and target set over current systems.
Raytheon is a preferred provider of overmatch solutions for both U.S. and international ground forces. It’s also building partnerships with international firms to offer new combat solutions based on existing technologies and future innovations.
