ORLANDO, Fla. Lockheed Martin has garnered a $175 million contract with the U.S. Navy to update the Navy?s Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) components and systems.

According to the Department of Defense (DoD), the contract -- relating to a previous basic ordering agreement -- calls for engineering, testing, product support, and ancillary support to update the current LRASM components and systems.

The LRASM is a long-range, precision-guided antiship missile that is usable in all weather conditions and includes a multimodal sensor suite, weapon data link, and enhanced digital antijam GPS to detect and destroy specific targets within a group of numerous ships at sea.

The majority of work under the contract will be performed in Lockheed Martin facilities in Orlando, Florida; Wayne, New Jersey; and Nashua, New Hampshire and is expected to be finished by November 2022.
