Derived from Dynetics technology and modified around previous Army science and technology programs, the Enduring Shield solution has been bid to meet the Army's Indirect Fire Protection Capability Increment 2 program needs. In creating Enduring Shield, Dynetics redesigned the launcher, created cost efficiencies, reduced complexity and refined capabilities.

Enduring Shield is capable of firing a range of missiles while providing current and future growth capabilities. The system offers a 360-degree envelope with the ability to engage multiple targets simultaneously. It can be fully integrated with the Army's Integrated Air and Missile Defense Battle Command System and offers both cyber resiliency and electronic warfare protections.

"The Enduring Shield solution leverages Dynetics' experience with ground-based launcher systems for the Army, including hypersonic missiles and other programs. We are eager to offer this all-American solution to the Army's cruise missile and other air defense needs," said Ronnie Chronister, senior vice president for Weapons Technology and Manufacturing at Dynetics.

The manufacturing of components, performance of initial assembly and system integration will be conducted in Huntsville, Alabama. Final assembly and system integration will be performed in Lawton, Oklahoma.
