“We’re honored to continue to partner with the Netherlands, our first PAC-3 international customer, for their missile defense capabilities,” said Brenda Davidson, vice president of PAC-3 Programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. “PAC-3 MSE is known around the world for its reliability and performance using Hit-to-Kill technology to ensure our customers remain ready to defend in 21st century warfare.”
