Anaheim (June 13, 2019). National Technical Systems, Inc. (“NTS”), the leader in qualification testing, inspection, and certification solutions in North America, is pleased to announce the successful testing of the DeepStrike missile—a long range precision strike missile. Developed by Raytheon Company for the US Army, the missile is part of the Precision Strike Missile program, which is intended to replace the Army Tactical Missile System. “We’re honored to support Raytheon and the US Army for delivering the most advanced weaponry in the world,” said Rich Adams, CEO at NTS.
Tested at the National Ordnance and Ballistic Test Center in Camden, Arkansas—one of NTS’s 28 test facilities in North America—the DeepStrike missile underwent rigorous testing to meet the performance requirements of the US Army. The multi-site facility in Camden is designed to test weapon systems, ordnance, rocket motors, hazardous materials, and commercial products. The facility’s expansive infrastructure—and NTS’s expertise in military testing—has allowed for the creation of a streamlined MIL-STD testing process, which made it easier to perform arena testing for the DeepStrike missile.
As a next generation missile, the DeepStrike missile is expected to increase firepower and expand range for the US Army’s precision guided long-range missiles—all while reducing cost. “As a veteran, I am particularly proud that our company is able to provide the most advanced missile testing to support the US Army and top defense contractors,” said Adams.
