ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., 29 June 2011. Thermal management experts at the Lockheed Martin Corp. Missiles and Fire Control segment in Orlando, Fla., needed electronics cooling components for the U.S. Army and Marine Corps Javelin shoulder-fired heat-seeking anti-tank missile. They found their solution from the Cobham plc Life Support segment in St. Petersburg, Fla.


Lockheed Martin awarded Cobham a $9.5 million follow-on contract to provide cooling system components and electrical assemblies for the Javelin missile and launcher, Cobham officials announced today.

Army and Marine Corps infantry warfighters use the Javelin missile to attack enemy tanks and other armored combat vehicles. The missile uses a longwave infrared heat-seeking sensor to acquire and track its targets, and is designed to attack combat vehicles from directly above where the armor is weakest.

The contract to Cobham involves Javelin missiles for U.S. Army and Marine Corps use, as well as for U.S. foreign allies. The missile was developed and built by the Javelin Joint Venture among Lockheed Martin and Raytheon. Cobham will start delivering the Javelin missile cooling systems from now until the end of 2012, and will do the work in St. Petersburg, Fla.
