Report: In ‘Historic’ First, US Navy Test-Launches Four LRASMs Simultaneously

The US Navy test-launched four Long-Range Anti-Ship Missiles (LRASM) simultaneously for the first time, marking a historic feat in the next-generation missile weapon development.

Conducted in collaboration with Lockheed Martin, the flight test aimed to demonstrate the missile’s inherent high-end lethality and its effects on targets.

It also served as the “graduation exercise” for the latest LRASM configuration, laying the foundation for increased capabilities in the future.

According to the company, each missile achieved its test objectives from inception to target destruction, though it did not provide specific details.

“This event was a testament to our commitment to deliver reliable products that work each and every time, ensuring those who serve stay ahead of ready,” program director Lisbeth Vogelpohl said.

Modern Security Solution

The LRASM is a stealth missile that provides unmatched lethality against highly-defended targets.

It has a range of 200 nautical miles (370 kilometers) and can be launched from a wide range of aircraft.

The weapon uses a sophisticated GPS-assisted guidance system to navigate toward its designated target with improved precision.

But the key feature of the LRASM is its ability to change course autonomously in case of the sudden appearance of enemy defenses.

“We have continued to invest in the design and development of LRASM’s anti-surface warfare capabilities to ensure that warfighters have the 21st century security solutions they need to complete their missions and come home safely,” Vogelpohl concluded.
