Lockheed Martin Delivers 22 JLTV Development Vehicles To U.S. Army And Marines

DALLAS, Aug. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) celebrated the delivery of 22 Joint Light Tactical Vehicles to the U.S. Army and Marine Corps today under the JLTV program's Engineering and Manufacturing Development (EMD) contract.

JLTV team members marked the milestone during a ceremony at the Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control facility in Dallas. The vehicles will be transferred to the Army's Yuma Test Center in Arizona and to Aberdeen Test Center in Maryland, where Lockheed Martin will support a 14-month period of government evaluation and testing.

"Our team has produced a highly capable, reliable and affordable JLTV for our customers," said Scott Greene, vice president of ground vehicles for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "These vehicles will meet the toughest demands of our Soldiers and Marines. They deserve our best, and that's precisely what we delivered."

After rolling up more than 160,000 combined test miles in the program's Technology Development phase, the Lockheed Martin JLTV was selected for continued development through a $65 million EMD contract from the Army and Marine Corps in August 2012. Lockheed Martin designed its JLTV specifically to meet stated customer requirements for the program, rather than trying to adapt an existing vehicle. The result is a lighter, more blast-resistant and more agile vehicle.

The Lockheed Martin JLTV is designed to be a total solution – engineered from the ground up to balance the "iron triangle" of protection, performance and payload while maintaining affordability. The vehicle provides greatly improved crew protection and mobility, lower logistical support costs, superior fuel efficiency, exportable power-generation with substantial margin for future growth, and state-of-the-art connectivity with other platforms and systems. A Meritor Pro-Tec TM air suspension system contributes to outstanding off-road performance while minimizing crew fatigue.

BAE Systems is responsible for the JLTV's geometrically enhanced protection system, a design that enables levels of blast protection never before achieved in this vehicle class, and for vehicle final assembly.
