LRASM is a precision-guided stealth missile capable of semi-autonomously detecting and identifying targeted enemy ships. The precision routing and guidance technology of the sensor which does not rely exclusively on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems, networking links, or GPS navigation enables the missile to operate effectively in contested domains and all weather conditions, day or night.

This LRASM seeker contract continues the transition of the program from Accelerated Acquisition to Low Rate Production.
