Governor Asa Hutchinson and officials with Lockheed Martin announced today at the Paris Air Show that the company is expanding its center of excellence in Camden, Arkansas, that produces the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (MIMARS) and performs final assembly for Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) and Precision Fires products for U.S. and allied military services.
“Lockheed Martin is a leading technology firm with facilities and clients around the world,” said Hutchinson. “Lockheed’s investment illustrates the fact that Arkansas continues to be a global player in the aero-defense industry.”
The expansion will support new construction and improve existing facilities for products like Terminal High Altitude Area Defense
