The United States has successfully fired two production representative Lockheed Martin Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM) from a U.S. Air Force B-1B.
Over the Sea Range at Point Mugu, California, a U.S. Air Force B-1B from Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, released a pair of LRASMs.
The missiles navigated through all planned waypoints, transitioned to mid-course guidance and flew toward the moving maritime target using inputs from the onboard sensors.
The missiles then positively identified the intended target and impacted successfully.
(LRASM is a precision-guided, anti-ship standoff missile based on the successful Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile – Extended Range (JASSM-ER), designed to meet the needs of U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters in contested environments.
