Aerojet Rocketdyne last week announced plans to develop an advanced propulsion solution for long range maneuverable fires (LRMF) missiles that Lockheed Martin is developing for the U.S. Army.

The LRMF missile is a precision fires missile that will launch from existing U.S. Army launchers, like HIMARS, to engage targets at ranges that significantly exceed those of the Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) baseline.

The LRMF program is using a multi-phased development approach; the current phase focuses on design and risk-reduction activities.

Last December, L3Harris Technologies acquired Aerojet Rocketdyne for $4.7 billion.
