Long Range Anti-Ship Missile completes third flight test
ORLANDO, Fla. U.S. Navy and Lockheed Martin officials collaborated to complete a third controlled flight test of the company’s Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM), this time launching from the Self Defense Test Ship at Pt. Mugu Sea Range, California.
The flight test demonstrated a pre-planned low-altitude profile collecting aerodynamics agility data. The missile was able to load mission data using the modified Tactical Tomahawk Weapon Control System (TTWCS+), align mission data with the ship, and launch from the MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS).
