G Systems delivers Test Set to Lockheed Martin

PLANO, Texas – April 06, 2007 – G Systems delivered the second of two NLOS-LS Test Sets to Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control (LMMFC) in Grand Prairie, TX. LMMFC awarded the $1M contract to G Systems in 2006 for design, integration, and installation of an automated test station for the Non-Line-of-Sight - Launch System (NLOS-LS) container launch unit.

The NLOS-LS is being developed for the U.S. Army’s Future Combat Systems ( FCS). FCS is the Army’s modernization program providing soldiers with leading-edge technologies and capabilities. The FCS, NLOS LS spin out one (system hardware) consists of the Precision Attack Missile, (PAM) and a highly deployable, platform-independent Container Launch Unit (C/LU) with self-contained tactical fire control electronics and software for remote and unmanned operations. Each Container Launch Unit (C/LU) will consist of a computer and communications system and 15 missiles.

“This test system is the result of a great engineering collaboration between G Systems and Lockheed Martin” said Lynda Harrell, G Systems’ President and CEO. “Because of the outstanding working relationship between G Systems and Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, we were able to turn a complex, full functional test system from design to installation in less than 6 months.”
