Precision Attack Missile

Orbital ATK is designing, developing and manufacturing the rocket motors for the Non-line-of-sight Launch System Precision Attack Missile (NLOS-LS PAM). We are working on the program under a contract from Raytheon Missile Systems.

Under development for integration into the U.S. Army’s Future Combat System, the Precision Attack Missile is a low-cost, direct-attack missile designed to support all weather operations up to 40 kilometers. It will be deployed from the platform-independent, multi-missile container launch unit, which can house up to 15 missiles.

The U.S. Army will use the PAM primarily against tanks, armored, lightly armored, and other stationary or moving targets. The U.S. Navy plans to integrate the system as a weapon module on the Littoral Combat Ship and Unmanned Surface Vehicle to defeat threats such as small moving boats.
