The MLRS is an armored, self-propelled, multiple rocket launcher; a type of rocket artillery adopted by several NATO countries. NSPA provides tailored logistics and technical support for the MLRS through the Artillery Rocket and Missile Systems (ARMS) Support Partnership.
The Agency has recently expanded its portfolio to include under the same Support Partnership, the High Mobility Artillery Rocket System (HIMARS), for which NSPA builds up a logistics support structure. The life cycle support to HIMARS draws on the solid experience already in place acquired through the support to the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) for decades.
The HIMARS is a unique mobile firepower to light forces, providing long-range precision fires, which span from 70 km up to 300 km. NSPA will build up a logistics support structure for the founder members, Romania and Poland, drawing on the solid organisation and experience already in place for the Multiple Launch Rocket System (MLRS) and exploiting commonalities with M270A1/ and A2 MLRS systems. This support structure will then be also available to other NATO nations, who have expressed a strong interest in the acquisition of the HIMARS system.
