New Systems


This project will acquire new indirect fire systems such as, but not limited to, a modern mortar system.


There is a requirement to provide highly responsive, all weather, 24/7, accurate indirect fire effects against mobile and static targets including high payoff and time sensitive targets. The Indirect Fire Modernization system(s) will provide fire support to joint forces, especially Battle Groups and Brigades. There is also a requirement for a cost effective indirect fire training system for the Regular and Reserve artillery units.
