BERLIN - On September 28, MBDA Deutschland GmbH submitted its proposal for the development of TLVS, Germany’s future ground-based air defense system, to BAAINBw (the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support).

"The offer presented to BAAINBw is the result of a detailed analysis and negotiation process with our partners and suppliers. It is based on the RFP (Request for Proposal) we received at the end of February 2016 and forms the basis for negotiations with the German customer," said Thomas Gottschild, Managing Director of MBDA Deutschland. The common objective is that the German parliament will be able to review the negotiated and finalized contract in spring 2017.

TLVS, based on MEADS technology, will provide unprecedented protection for both civilians and soldiers on operations either at home or abroad. Special system features include: 360-degree coverage, open system architecture and a "plug & fight" capability. This latter feature allows the attaching and detaching of additional sensors, effectors and weapon systems during uninterrupted operation, as well as rapid deployment. In addition, the TLVS air defense system can be operated at a significantly lower cost to the user than existing systems and with fewer personnel and will provide the German Air Force with a level of interoperability with allied forces that has not been available up to now.

DALLAS - Lockheed Martin has manufactured and delivered the first modernized Tactical Missile System (TACMS) missile to the U.S. Army from its Camden, Arkansas, production facility.

As part of the U.S. Army's TACMS Service Life Extension Program inventory refurbishment effort, the modernized missile includes updated guidance electronics and added capability to defeat area targets without leaving behind unexploded ordnance. This first Camden-produced missile will be flight-tested later this year at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico.

The TACMS (formerly ATACMS) modernization process disassembles and demilitarizes previous-generation submunition warheads, which do not comply with the 2018 international treaty, replacing them with new unitary warheads. The modernization process also resets the missile's 20+ year shelf life, effectively creating a new missile for a fraction of a new missile's cost.

"These new modifications enhance TACMS' capability and significantly extend its useful life," said Ken Musculus, vice president of Tactical Missiles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "These upgrades ensure TACMS is ready to meet our customers' needs now and into the future."

Additionally, the TACMS platform provides flexibility to quickly integrate novel payloads and new capabilities as required by the warfighter.
