The company said the Typhon battery includes launchers, a control center and missiles.
Lockheed Martin's investment in advanced engineering processes and digital upgrades has allowed the company to tailor the Aegis command and control functions and the Mark 41 vertical launch system to meet the Army's long-range fire requirements in a timely manner, the company said
They suggested the Typhoon would help the U.S. Army become a more flexible and versatile force.
