but the Nlos-LS programme was cancelled in early 2011.
NLOS-LS is to consist of missiles in a deployable, platform-independent, container launch unit (CLU), which can be fired in an unmanned and remote mode.
NLOS-LS is being developed as part of the Army's FCS program to provide soldiers with a rapidly deployable precision-fires delivery system.
The NLOS-LS will provide sensor-fused indirect fire capability at the platoon level.
The FCS NLOS-LS spin out one consists of a Precision Attack Missile (PAM) and a highly deployable, platform-independent C/LU with self-contained tactical fire control electronics and software for remote and unmanned operations.
According to current plans, each FCS brigade would be equipped with 60 launchers, which would make up a battalion, Within the battalion, NLOS-LS platoons will have firing batteries and a headquarters component to position the weapons on the battlefield.
Both companies are under contract by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to demonstrate elements of the NLOS-LS weapon system.
We have entered a remarkable era of all-weather, all-terrain precision effects, available to maneuver commanders 24/7, with Excalibur, GMLRS unitary, and the near-future nonline-of-sight launch system (NLOS-LS) precision attack missile (PAM), projected to be fielded in FY12.
The Non-Line-of-Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS) consists of a family of missiles and a highly deployable, platform-independent Container Launch Unit (C/LU) with self-contained tactical fire-control electronics and software for remote and unmanned operations.
The test vehicle was a demonstration Precision Attack Missile, part of the Army Non-Line-Of-Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS), also known as Netfires.
The Non-Line-of-Sight Launch System (NLOS-LS) is a core part of FCS.
Returning to the subject of the FCS programme, it may be noted that, although development of the turbojet-powered, swing-wing Lockheed Martin Loitering Attack Missile (Lam) component of the Nlos-LS (Non-Line-of-Sight--Launch System) has been deferred, Raytheon is working on a Multi-Purpose Loitering Missile system.
