Orbital ATKOrbital ATK Inc. and the U.S. Navy have jointly demonstrated an anti-radiation guided missile at China Lake Naval Air Warfare Center to assess how the missile targets an advanced air defense radar threat.

The AGM-88E advanced anti-radiation guided missile block 1 software upgrade detected and identified an air defense radar system before the missile hit the target, Orbital ATK Inc said Monday.

A pilot received information pertaining to the target before launching the AARGM block 1 software upgrade from a U.S. Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet during the live fire test.

“The AARGM Block 1 software upgrade testing successfully demonstrated the missile“™s performance in a very challenging tactical scenario,“ said Cary Ralston, vice president and general manager of Orbital ATK“™s defense electronic systems division.

AARGM is designed to conduct Destruction of Enemy Air Defense and time sensitive strike operations.
