Mistral will design, build and test Organic Precision Fires-Mounted systems that will provide U.S. marine warfighters with intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance, and highly accurate and precise indirect fire strike capabilities By DA Reporter / 28 Jun 2021

The U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) System Command – Quantico VA has awarded Mistral Inc. a contract to design, build and test a new loitering missile system. 

The Organic Precision Fires – Mounted (OPF-M) missile system will be integrated onto the Light Armored Vehicle-Mortar (LAV-M), Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV), and Long-Range Unmanned Surface Vessel (LRUSV).  

Mistral teamed with UVision to provide the USMC with advanced and unique Loitering Strike Munition capabilities based on UVision’s Hero 120. 

The OPF-M will provide the Marines with intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance (ISR), and highly accurate precision indirect fire strike capabilities. 

Mistral will also integrate the OPF strike system with the USMC Command and Control (C2) and other mission payloads.    

“Mistral and UVision bring together decades of experience in the development and manufacturing of defense systems to address the US Marine Corp’s need for a proven precision strike loitering system,” stated Col. (Ret.) Yossi Gez, EVP of Mistral.  

“Mistral is privileged by the USMC selection of our solution for the OPF-M program. Mistral and our teammates are honored to provide our Warfighters with the OPF mission-critical precision strike systems,” said Ms. Banai, President of Mistral. 

The USMC selected Mistral after the successful completion of tests and evaluations at different U.S. Government test centers.
