Lock­heed Martin has flight-tested a pro­duc­tion-con­fig­u­ra­tion Long Range Anti-Ship Mis­sile (LRASM) from a US Air Force B-1B bomber of the 337th Test Squadron over the Sea Range at Point Mugu, Cal­i­for­nia, im­pact­ing the mar­itime tar­get and meet­ing test objectives. “LRASM is de­signed to de­tect and de­stroy spe­cific tar­gets within groups of ships by em­ploy­ing ad­vanced tech­nolo­gies that re­duce de­pen­dence on in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance plat­forms, net­work links and GPS nav­i­ga­tion in elec­tronic war­fare en­vi­ron­ments. LRASM will play a sig­nif­i­cant role in en­sur­ing mil­i­tary ac­cess to op­er­ate in open ocean/blue waters, ow­ing to its en­hanced abil­ity to dis­crim­i­nate and con­duct tac­ti­cal en­gage­ments from ex­tended ranges.”
