Lockheed Martin: Production of Alternative Warhead to avoid Convention on Cluster Munitions

In 2013, Lockheed Martin “successfully“ tested the GMLRS – Alternative Warhead Program (AWP) to create a GMLRS variant designed to achieve the same (indiscriminate) area-effects as older submunitions warheads banned under the Convention on Cluster Munitions. The Alternative Warhead is being developed by ATK under subcontract to Lockheed Martin1.
