Navy Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds contract won by Lockheed Martin

ARCHBALD, Pennsylvania. Lockheed Martin won a $25.8 million U.S. Navy contract to manufacture and deliver Enhanced Laser Guided Training Rounds (ELGTR) and also refurbish reusable shipping containers and provide the associated technical data, to eventually extend ELGTR production into late 2018.

This award is the last of four options under the 2013 $84.5 million indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract.

The U.S. Navy as well as 10 international partner countries use ELGTR for training programs, says Joe Serra, program director at Missiles and Fire Control.

Lockheed Martin engineers have produced more than 150,000 advanced training rounds for the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps and international users.
