Double combat power at a fraction of the cost
The DeepStrike® missile is a longer-range guided weapon that fires from land launchers. It is Raytheon’s proposal for the U.S. Army’s Precision Strike Missile requirement, and it answers the Army’s call for “overmatch,” or an overwhelming technological advantage over enemy forces.
Raytheon engineers designed the missile so that two can fit in a single weapons pod – a feature that reduces its cost and would effectively double the Army launchers’ combat power. The DeepStrike missile has several advantages over the current weapon; it flies farther, packs more punch and has a superior guidance system.
Raytheon has integrated the DeepStrike missile into the Army's M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS launchers. The new missile's range and speed will enable Army combat units to engage targets over vast geographic areas in high-threat environments.
