DALLAS, Aug. 4, 2015 – The Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) Team continues to produce company-funded Production Representative Vehicles (PRVs) at its Camden, Arkansas, production facility.
The PRVs are being assembled to reduce technical risk, optimize the advanced production processes at the Camden assembly plant, and to exercise and prepare the supply chain.
“The first two of these PRVs are now in Dallas going through a series of tests to validate technical capability and performance,” said Scott Greene, vice president of Ground Vehicles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “Our goal is to produce the best-value, most protected, most tactically effective JLTV possible to help assure our soldiers and Marines complete their missions and return safely.”
The Lockheed Martin JLTV Team plans to produce as many as eight PRVs over the next few weeks.
“These PRVs are confirming that our processes work just as we knew they would,” Greene said. “As a Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award winner for Manufacturing Excellence, we will leave nothing to chance in the production of the JLTV.”
The Lockheed Martin Team’s JLTV is a fully integrated combat tactical system that meets today’s requirements and was designed with the future in mind. It offers MRAP levels of protection with unprecedented cross-country mobility, a substantial increase in performance and payload, as well as greater reliability, outstanding fuel efficiency, and lower operations and sustainment costs.
