Dallas, TX (11/18/15) Lone Star Analysis, internationally recognized business and technology decision support, modeling, and simulation, and a trusted provider of advisory services that address highly complex client issues announces its support of the successful completion of the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) test milestone for the Norwegian Ministry of Defense (NORMOD) last week.
The missile was launched at 22,000 ft. from an Edwards Air Force-based F-16 over the Utah Test and Training Range and performed a number of challenging flight maneuvers. The test proved the maturity of the missile, which is specifically designed to fit inside the F-35A weapons bay, and the missile flight control software.
The JSM is a new missile being developed for the Norwegian Armed Forces. The missile will complete the qualification program in 2017 and will have unmatched operational capabilities enabling the F-35 to fight well-defended targets across long distances. The missile will be integrated on the F-35A but can also be integrated on other types of aircraft, meaning its market potential extends beyond the future users of the F-35.
Lone Star was selected to support the JSM effort based on its unique Program and Systems Advisory background and deep weapons development and integration domain knowledge. The scope of this effort has included supporting a weapon qualification program including all U.S. flight testing, weapon software integration, and integrated product team (IPT) management.
“Lone Star’s capability to effectively navigate the required organizations in a timely and cost effective manner was critical to our client,” Matthew Bowers, Vice President, Corporate Development for Lone Star. “Overall, the team has been able to save NORMOD significant time and money, while engaging many critical domestic and international stakeholders.”
In addition to NORMOD, Lone Star has a broad range of international clients in both the Military & Intelligence and Aerospace & Defense market sectors. The company has provided Program and Systems Advisory, Strategic Transformation, Performance Optimization, and Competitive Differentiation solutions in international locations including Norway, Japan, Sweden, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
