The Tomahawk Land Attack Missile (TLAM) is a crucial part of the US defense strategy. Just last month, the TLAM system launched 59 missiles into Syria after Assad’s deadly chemical attacks. Today, the USS Michigan is “locked, docked and loaded” with 22 tubes carrying seven Tomahawk Missiles each, sitting just off the coast of the Korean Peninsula.
Readiness is critical for the TLAM. That’s why in 2016, the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) was tasked with upgrading one of it’s three components, the Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System (TTWCS) in order to reduce the system’s complexity and in turn, improve operator interaction. As a contractor for this effort, CTG has been working steadily to secure more than 420 lines of various material for the upgrade.
