The first Camden-build Army Tactical Missile System has been delivered to the United States Army.

Lockheed Martin has delivered the first Army Tactical Missile System (ATACMS) missile to the U.S. Army from the company’s new production facility in Camden.

“We’ve been working toward this moment for more than a year when ATACMS production began here in Camden,” said Colin Sterling, site director at Camden Operations. “Our team takes great pride in helping our customers including the U.S. Army meet their future long-range precision strike objectives.”

Lockheed Martin is under contract to deliver 124 new ATACMS missiles to the U.S. Army and an international customer. The ATACMS program is in full-rate production at Lockheed Martin’s Precision Fires Production Center of Excellence in Camden.

Concurrent with production efforts, Lockheed Martin is nearing completion of a development contract with the U.S. Army that further enhances existing ATACMS missiles. The modifications include upgrades to the missile electronics, and complete the qualification of a height-of-burst proximity sensor, which provides increased area effects on targets.

CHAMBERSBURG – Letterkenny Army Depot is not resting on its laurels after two years under the command of Col. Deacon Maddox, according to Maj. Gen. Douglas Gabram.

Gabram, commander of the U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command, passed the installation’s colors on Friday from Maddox to incoming commander Col. Stephen Ledbetter. About 200 people attended the ceremony outside the headquarters building.

“Letterkenny’s future, while challenging, is bright with multiple opportunities to expand this depot’s impact on the nation’s readiness,” Gabram said. “The Multi-Mission Launcher – a government designed, integrated and produced piece of equipment – confidence is high that it will be produced here with our great workforce leading the way.”

The Army has invested $119 million in MML prototypes. The truck-mounted air defense system is designed to knock-out threats – including drones, cruise missiles, rockets, artillery and mortars — from any direction. The 15-tube launcher is the first major program developed by the government industrial base in more than 30 years, according to the Army.

CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — Remains unearthed at a Pennsylvania Army base don’t match the Native American child thought to have been buried there after dying at the government-run Carlisle Indian Industrial School in the 19th century, authorities said Friday.

The U.S. Army said Friday the grave thought to contain 10-year-old Little Plume, also called Hayes Vanderbilt Friday, doesn’t match his age, and in fact contains two sets of unidentified remains.

The remains of 15-year-old Little Chief, also known as Dickens Nor, and 14-year-old Horse, also called Horace Washington, do match and will be returned to a Northern Arapaho delegation on Monday. They’ll be reburied in Wyoming’s Wind River Reservation.
