An unmanned target ship demonstrates the effects of the second successful flight test of a Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) prototype, conducted November 12 off the coast of Southern California. The test reinforced the results of LRASM’s first successful free-flight transition test (FFTT) on August 27, which verified the prototype’s flight characteristics and assessed subsystem and sensor performance. Both tests achieved all of their objectives after the prototypes used their respective onboard sensors to detect, engage and hit the moving 260-foot target ships with inert warheads.
DARPA and the Office of Naval Research (ONR) are collaborating on the LRASM program, which is developing new approaches and advanced capabilities for surface warfare to support a variety of Department of Defense missions. For more information, please visit the LRASM program page.
