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.
