Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM)
IN A NUTSHELL...(Back to Top)
The Long Range Anti-Ship Missile program is a Navy and DARPA effort to develop an autonomous, precision-guided anti-ship standoff missile based on the JASSM missile. The missile uses a multi-modal sensor suite, data link, and global positioning system to detect and destroy ships at sea. Lockheed Martin won the competition in 2009 to develop LRASM, beating out competitors Raytheon and Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace.
