Lockheed Martin successfully delivered the Spike Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) missile system on Oshkosh’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) to US Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), demonstrating the versatility of the Spike NLOS weapon system.
Spike NLOS is a multi-purpose, electro-optical/infrared missile system with an advanced rocket motor that enables it to reach ranges of up to 32 kilometers. Users can integrate Spike NLOS with ground, aviation or maritime platforms – while leveraging its stand-off capability to strike distant or geographically concealed targets without line-of-sight.
“The combination of Spike NLOS’s long-range and precision-strike capabilities with the JLTV’s superior agility will result in next-level mobility and mission effectiveness for our operators,” said Jerry Brode, vice president of Close Combat Systems at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “This advanced weapon system’s real-time video imagery allows operators to alter or abort mission while en route to a target, providing users with more options in critical moments.”
Using a Lockheed Martin developed remote launcher, the weapon system can be mounted directly onto almost any vehicle with a standard palletized interface in less than 20 minutes, without any vehicle modifications.
