Camden News August 8, 2012

 

   DALLAS – Lockheed Martin has delivered the 20,000th Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) Unitary rocket to the U.S. Army.
   With a range of up to 70 kilometers, GMLRS Unitary is an all-weather, precision-strike weapon that can be deployed rapidly, producing pinpoint engagements with minimal collateral damage, according to a Lockheed Martin news release. The GMLRS rocket is assembled at the company’s production facility in Camden.
   "The 20,000 production milestone is a great achievement, and recognition of the continued relevancy of GMLRS to our U.S. and allied warfighters," Lt. Col. T.J. Wright, the U.S. Army’s product manager for Precision Guided Missiles and Rockets, said in the news release. "GMLRS has a bright future as the longrange, precision-fire weapon of choice when commanders need to decisively and accurately attack high-value targets while minimizing the risk of collateral damage. The development of the GMLRS Alternative Warhead will also add a critical area weapon capability to our warfighters who rely on GMLRS to deliver all-weather, 24/7 responsive fires when they need it most."
   "Soldiers and Marines on the ground depend on GMLRS, and we continue to honor that trust by delivering one of the most accurate and reliable precision strike artillery systems ever produced," said Scott Arnold, vice president of precision fires in Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business. "Our workforce is committed to providing weapon systems that protect our warfighters when it is needed most."
   To date, more than 2,300 of the longrange GMLRS Unitary rounds have been fired by U.S. Army, Marine Corps and British forces in coalition operations, and the rocket has achieved a combat reliability rate of 98 percent, the news release stated.
   Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 120,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation’s net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
 
 
Spectra Marks 10 Years of Success PDF Print E-mail

You’ve come a long way, baby,” Maryjo Cohen, CEO and President of National Presto Industries, told Spectra Technologies LLC. in a letter read at the company’s 10th anniversary celebration on Wednesday, June 27, 2012.  Spectra Technologies LLC. was founded on July 1, 2002, with only two employees,  the original founders, David Siggers and Mike McAlexander.  Later in late 2003, National Presto Industries purchased the small enterprise to complement its defense division. Ten years after inception, 200 employees call Spectra home.

During the celebration at its production facility, Spectra Technologies LLC., took time to honor some of her former employees, and the area businesses that have significantly supported Spectra and who were instrumental in Spectra’s success, and her customers.  With their encouragement and support, Spectra has seen its annual sales grow from $350,000 in its infancy to over $40 million.  “We don’t get it done by ourselves” Siggers said, “the local area businesses that supported Spectra in the early years were instrumental in setting the tone for a successful future”, specifically thanked were CSI construction, Highland Industrial Park, Highland Machine works and Mid-South. Siggers and McAlexander left General Dynamics to form Spectra where General Dynamics became their first customer and remains one today.

David Siggers, President of Spectra Technologies, stated that Spectra is a home-grown business, started in Camden. Spectra has pumped more than $65M into the local economy through payroll and through the purchasing of goods and services, over her 10 years in business.  Siggers attributes the success of Spectra by following a quality policy that expects Spectra to provide a benefit to the customer, the shareholder, the employee, and our suppliers.  Although McAlexander is now retired from Spectra, the vision he and Siggers instilled in from the beginning are still readily apparent today through the success of the company.

During that ten years, Spectra Technologies has seen many firsts.  They were the first company to build TNT demolition blocks outside of a government-owned facility, the first commercially-owned company to build Claymore mines for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, and the first company to produce high velocity tactical and practice ammunitions outside of a government-owned facility. Each Spectra employee is committed to the relentless pursuit of excellence in providing quality products to the men and women of our armed forces.

Lockheed gets new GMLRS contract

 

Camden News April 25, 2012

 

   Lockheed Martin received a $79.4 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to develop a new variant of the Guided Multiple Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) that incorporates a new warhead.
   Under the terms of the contract, the GMLRS Alternative Warhead Engineering and Manufacturing Development Program in Camden will run 36 months, and will focus on system performance, warhead qualification and producibility, according to a Lockheed Martin news release.
   The GMLRS alternative warhead is unitary and will perform as a drop-in replacement for the currently fielded Dual-Purpose Improved Conventional Munition warhead.
   "We are eager to move forward with the Alternative Warhead Program and provide soldiers and marines with a precision-engagement capability that meets their evolving requirements," said Scott Arnold, vice president of precision fires for Lockheed Martin’s Missiles and Fire Control business. "GMLRS has been a trusted weapon of choice in current combat operations in Afghanistan, and continues to exceed operational-readiness requirements."
   GMLRS is an all-weather, precision-guided rocket that provides increased accuracy thus reducing the number of rockets necessary to defeat current targets, according to the news release During live-fire testing by the U.S. Army, the ATK-designed Alternative Warhead demonstrated that it meets performance and mission requirements, reduces technical risk and matches current weapon flight characteristics without major modifications to the existing GMLRS delivery system, the release stated.
   Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation’s net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.
