Marotta to Develop Multiple Power Conversion Units for LRASM

Marotta Controls announces that it has been selected by Lockheed Martin to develop multiple power conversion units for the Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), which Lockheed Martin is developing as a joint program with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Department of the Navy and the U.S. Air Force.

Lockheed Martin will integrate Marotta’s power conversion units into various avionics systems within the missile.

LRASM is a precision-guided anti-ship standoff missile that meets the needs of the U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters. Capable of launch from B-1B or F/A-18E/F aircraft, LRASM is designed to fly to the target area, find and defeat the target.

Marotta’s power conversion units are critical components of LRASM, converting aircraft power into reliable output power for various avionics systems
within the missile. Each power conversion unit required a careful balance of meeting performance while optimizing efficiency in the extremely demanding missile environment. These power conversion units achieve efficiency, minimal weight and optimal thermal management through simple and proven topologies, performance based component selection, and efficient power conversion.
Under this agreement Marotta Controls will provide Lockheed Martin with qualification and Engineering, Manufacturing and Development (EMD) units.

“This is a significant program win for Marotta Controls,” said Michael Leahan, senior vice president of business development and chief sales officer at Marotta Controls. “This award is a reflection of our commitment to ensure our customers’ success. We are committed to achieve our customers’ objectives on this important program and have a dedicated world-class technical team focused on every aspect of program execution. We are honored to work with Lockheed Martin, one of the world’s most respected defense companies, on this next generation missile program.”
