Lockheed’s JLTV Completes US Government’s Production Readiness Review

Lockheed Martin's JLTV manufacturing facility at Camden, Arkansas, is ready for production. Camden Operations has been recognized numerous times over the years for its exceptional manufacturing quality.US: The Lockheed Martin Team’s Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) program has successfully completed the government’s Production Readiness Review (PRR). During the PRR event, the team assembled a JLTV on its production line to further demonstrate production readiness.

The PRR was a detailed evaluation of Lockheed Martin’s JLTV production planning and readiness in terms of schedule, performance, cost and other criteria. Successfully completing the PRR is one of the government’s critical steps for a contractor to demonstrate production readiness. “Our Camden facility is ready for production. To fully prove that point, we assembled a JLTV on our Camden production line during the PRR event, proving conclusively that the line and facility are ready for vehicle assembly right now,” said Scott Greene, Vice President of ground vehicles at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.

The Lockheed Martin Team’s JLTV is systems-engineered to provide crew protection comparable to Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles, while returning crucial mobility, reliability and transportability to Soldiers and Marines. The Lockheed Martin Team’s JLTV pioneered the single level of protection approach for both the Army and Marine Corps, demonstrating protection above that of the smaller MRAP vehicles fielded in-theater.
