BAE Sensor for LRASM 6 November, 2017

BAE Systems commenced US Navy’s long-range anti-ship missile (LRASM) sensor technology production as part of a $40m contract previously awarded by Lockheed Martin. 

The LRASM will employ the sensor to seek and attack specific high-threat maritime targets within groups of ships, including those protected by complex anti-aircraft systems. BAE’s precision routing and guidance technology do not rely exclusively on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems, networking links, or GPS navigation, which allows the missile to operate effectively in contested domains and all weather conditions, day or night.
