16 October 2007

Sparta Composite Products recently began shipments of NLOS-LS (Non-Line-Of-Site Launch System) Precision Attack Missile (PAM) all up round (AUR) Containers for final delivery to the Army Evaluation Task Force (AETF).

Sparta is responsible for the design, development, qualification and production and assembly of the NLOS-LS PAM AUR containers under contract to Raytheon Missile Systems.

David Money, Sparta Composites’ NLOS-LS PAM Container Program Co-Manager said, “the lightweight composite NLOS-LS PAM Containers enhance the functionality of the NLOS-LS system by providing PAM Missile transportation, long term Depot storage, and Combat Environment protection, as well as providing a launch platform for the PAM missile. The Container is designed to require little or no maintenance throughout the expected life of the system.”
