The Army will hold an industry day next month to provide further information on its program to replace the tube-launched, optically tracked, wire-guided missile, the service announced Monday.

The Army will provide new information on the program timeline and desired characteristics of the Close Combat Missile System-Heavy during the virtual industry day on Oct. 20. The service first announced the program last year and the following June released a request for information that said the new capability will be used to defeat armored threats and field fortification. It will initially augment existing stockpiles of the TOW family of missiles, while maintaining compatibility with platforms and launchers.

The industry day will include a brief overview of the program, a question-and-answer session and individual sessions for vendors to talk directly with the project manager office, according to the notice.

Companies interested in attending the industry day must RSVP to Staci Doss at by Oct. 3.
