Abstract:

The High Mobility Artillery Rocket System HIMARS is a wheeled, agile, rocket and guided missile launcher for which logistics and sustainment are provided through a public-private partnership PPP between the U.S. Army and Lockheed Martin. The HIMARS program relies on a performance-based logistics PBL strategy that ensures the cost-effective delivery of specified performance outcomes. Since its inception the HIMARS PBL has consistently met or exceeded cost and performance objectives, having twice received the Secretary of Defense Performance-Based Logistics Award, which recognizes government and industry teams that provide warfighters with superior operational capability.
