Paper Abstract

The NetFires program is poised to redefine extended range precision engagements for tactical ground forces. This system is designed to support light and mechanized near term and objective U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps forces. The system uses a combination of advanced propulsion, navigation and seeker technology, and networked data links to enable a new class of weapons enabling precision dominance on future battlefields. In addition the program is clearly focused on reducing the logistical footprint of future ground forces.
