The US Air Force has awarded a contract to Lockheed Martin to produce four Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM), the Department of Defense announced Thursday.
“Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Orlando, Florida, has been awarded a $13,920,004 fixed-price incentive modification (P00012) to previously awarded contract FA8682-17-C-0037 for Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) Lot 1 production,” the statement reads.
The Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) is an autonomous, precision-guided anti-ship stand-off missile. The missile is developed based on JASSM-ER (Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile-Extended Range).
Work will be performed in Orlando, Florida, and is expected to be complete by February 28, 2020.
The missile has all the capabilities that JASSM-ER has: the same lethal 1,000-pound warhead, pinpoint accuracy with an infrared sensor, and both GPS and anti-jam navigation. But the LRASM can detect, identify and attack moving, maritime targets.
Lockheed Martin has test fired production-configuration Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM) from a US Air Force B-1B bomber. During the test over the Sea Range at Point Mugu, California, B-1B aircrew simultaneously launched two LRASMs against multiple maritime targets, meeting the primary test objectives, including target impact, the company said in a statement Wednesday
Lockheed Martin conducted a controlled flight test of the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) surface-launch variant from the Self Defense Test Ship. This was the third surface-launched LRASM test to showcase the missiles ability to load mission data using the modified Tactical Tomahawk Weapon Control System (TTWCS+), align mission data with the moving ship and launch from the MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS), the company said in a statement Thursday
Lockheed Martin has won a $20 million modification contract to perform risk reduction and technical maturity efforts associated with the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) program. The contractor will execute Systems Requirement Review 2 and support a preliminary design review
Lockheed Martin recently validated that its Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) can be launched from any MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS) upon software modification to the existing shipboard equipment. During the company-funded test, LRASM and Tactical Tomahawk Weapons Control System (TTWCS), MK 41 VLS and Mk-114 booster hardware with modified software executed simulated missions and provided all electrical interfaces and data transfers needed to prepare and launch LRASMs
Lockheed Martin has recently completed a series of Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) captive carry flight tests at the Sea Range in Point Mugu, California. The primary mission objectives were to collect telemetry for post-flight analysis, verify proper control room telemetry displays and simulate all the test activities that will occur in later air-launched flight tests
