THE NAVY’S NEW ANTI-SHIP MISSILE GETS A BIG BOOST

Earlier this week Lockheed Martin received a new, $71 million contract to continue work on its Long Range Anti-Ship Missile.

The contract awarded from the Pentagon’s research arm, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, will allow more testing and risk assessment for the LRASM.

LRASM is an autonomous, precision-guided anti-ship standoff missile based on the successful JASSM-ER, and is designed to meet the needs of U.S. Navy and Air Force warfighters. LRASM is in development with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and the Office of Naval Research.
