Lockheed receives missile canards from Liquidmetal

Missile canards from Liquidmetal Technologies Inc. have been delivered to Lockheed Martin for use in future testing of Lockheed's EAPS missile. The canards are made from special amorphous alloys.

Located at the front of a missile, they enhance the weapon's maneuverability in flight. Lockheed will use the canards on its Extended Area Protection and Survivability missile (EAPS), advanced hit-to-kill missile for use against rocket, artillery and mortar targets with reduced probabilities for collateral damage.
