The next major strategic weapons capability for long-range precision fires
The hypersonic threat is very real — and we need to equip the warfighter to combat it. With a history of providing rapid, novel, and creative solutions, Leidos is a trusted partner in weapons systems research and development. Building systems that can travel at Mach 5 or higher, these weapons will be delivering residual combat capability by 2023 to counter and gain a lead on our adversarial technological advances in this field.

Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon
The Long-Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) program will introduce a new class of ultrafast, maneuverable, long-range missiles that can launch from ground platforms. The LRHW prototype includes the new C-HGB, an existing, refurbished trailer and truck to be modified as a new launcher, and an existing Army command and control system.
