LockheedLogoLockheed Martin has conducted trial runs of a missile the company has built for the U.S. Navy, which aims to deploy the weapon system by 2016.

All four Long Range Land Attack Projectiles hit their targets within a horizontal distance of 51 miles during the demonstration in New Mexico, the company said Wednesday.

“These tests bring us closer to completing the 35 tests required by the U.S. Navy to demonstrate the maturity and performance of the system,“ said Richard Benton, Lockheed's LRLAP program manager.

Lockheed says the LRLAP contains GPS and rocket electronics systems that are designed for launch from a DDG 1000 ship.

LRLAP is also intended for U.S. Marine Corps, Army, joint and coalition forces that conduct expeditionary assaults or urban operations in coastal cities.
