Artillery Replacement 155mm Howitzer

Prime Contractor:  Through several United States Government Foreign Military Sales cases

This project will deliver approximately 35 M777A2 lightweight towed howitzers, a command and control battle management system based on the Advanced Field Artillery Tactical Data System software, and course correcting fuzes. This project has introduced into service the towed howitzers, and the final version of the battle management system.

During 2013-14, this project will progress integration activities and is on track to achieve Final Materiel Release. The acquisition of the course correcting fuze is dependant upon the capability achieving United States Government Materiel Release, which is anticipated to occur in late 2012-13. The key risk for this project is achieving complete integration and interoperability within the ADF Joint Fires Digital Command and Control environment.
