Mobix Labs Begins Javelin Guided System Components Delivery for US Army

Fabless semiconductor company Mobix Labs has started delivering guidance system components for the U.S. Army’s Javelin Missile Systems.

The components will be delivered under a contract awarded to the Javelin Joint Venture, a partnership between RTX and Lockheed Martin. The contract was awarded to meet a growing demand for the Javelin, a weapon system co-developed by RTX and Lockheed Martin to destroy armored and soft targets from up to 4 kilometers away using a guided warhead.

The Javelin contract’s performance period is until 2026, Mobix Labs said.

The U.S. military continues to push the production capacity for defense weapons, including the Javelin, in response to the Russia-Ukraine war.

Doug Bush, assistant secretary of the Army for acquisition, logistics and technology and a past Potomac Officers Club speaker, said in August that the military expects to produce over 80,000 rounds by 2025 to support Ukraine’s counteroffensive operations against Russia. Bush also noted that the Javelin, the Stinger and other U.S.-made defense systems are highly effective in combat owing to decades of development and testing.
