Cobham Analytic Solutions (San Diego, Calif., USA) announced on Feb. 24 that it has received a follow-on production contract valued at $5.7 million from Raytheon/Lockheed Martin Javelin Joint Venture in support of the Javelin program. Cobham will provide additional lightweight composite missile components for the Javelin weapon system which has been in production at Cobham’s San Diego facility since the early 1990s. Deliveries on the latest contract run through September 2011.
Javelin is a one-man, portable and employable — fire and forget — medium-range, close-combat assault weapon system.

This contract will support both U.S. and foreign customer(s) requirements for the Javelin weapon system. Javelin was developed and is built by a joint venture formed by Raytheon and Lockheed Martin.
“Our experienced program team will continue our vigilant focus on providing products that meet our customers’ delivery and quality needs in support of the warfighter”, said Jeremy Wensinger, president of Cobham Defense Systems. “This contract award reflects our continuing successful relationship with the Javelin Joint Venture in providing world class advanced composite structural components for use in missile components and systems.”
