Key Points
  • LRASM goes 'three-for-three' in air-launched flight testing
  • Latest test demonstrates low altitude performance, obstacle avoidance
Lockheed Martin's Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) has successfully completed its latest air-launched flight test on the Point Mugu sea test range off California.

The test was jointly conducted by the US Navy (USN), the US Air Force (USAF), and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), through the joint service LRASM Deployment Office (LDO) in early February. It was the third air-launched test to date, and was carried out to evaluate LRASM's low-altitude performance and obstacle avoidance as part of an accelerated development and acquisition effort.
