Alternative Warhead Program (GMLRS)

Orbital ATK is developing an alternative warhead for the Guided Multiple-Launch Rocket System (GMLRS) under the U.S. Army technology demonstration phase of the GMLRS Alternative Warhead Program. The alternative warhead is a drop-in replacement for the currently fielded Dual-Purpose Improved Conventional Munition (DPICM) warhead.

Orbital ATK’s warhead is designed to meet or exceed GMLRS DPICM unexploded ordnance (UXO) requirements, fit within the existing rocket architecture and concept of operations, and meet lethality and insensitive munitions requirements. The warhead has completed qualification and will soon enter production.

Adaptable to any platform with the goal of replacing submunition type munitions, Orbital ATK's warhead provides Combatant Commanders with equivalent performance against targets without residual UXO. Orbital ATK’s design uses innovative components to meet mission requirements, lower technical risk and match current warhead flight characteristics, with no modifications to the existing delivery system. Arena tests have validated that the design meets established performance requirements including lethality, mass and geometry, environment and insensitive munitions.
