Lockheed Martin opens new facility for PAC-3 production

American weapons manufacturer Lockheed Martin has opened a new facility to increase the production capacity for the PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE), the world’s most advanced air defense missile.
Lockheed Martin has steadily increased production numbers of PAC-3 MSE since achieving a full-rate production decision in 2018, and it is currently producing more than 300 PAC-3 MSEs each year and it is expected to increase that number to 500 PAC-3 MSEs.

An evolution of the battle-proven PAC-3 CRI, the PAC-3 MSE boasts a dual-pulse solid rocket motor, providing increased performance in altitude and range to defend against incoming threats, including tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, and aircraft.
