    MK-41 Vertical Launch System

    Lockheed Martin has won a $7 million contract for the manufacture of spares and repair parts used in the MK-41 Vertical Launching System (VLS).

    The MK-41 VLS is a shipborne missile canister launching system which provides a rapid-fire launch capability against hostile threats.It is capable of simultaneously preparing two missiles in each 8-cell launcher module, enabling fast reaction to multiple threats with concentrated, continuous firepower. Multimode operation allows simultaneous interface and missile preparation for discrete antiaircraft, antisubmarine warfare, strike, naval surface fire support and ballistic missile defense missions.

    Work is expected to be complete by November 2019, the company said in a statement Monday.
