David Helsel: Lockheed's LRASM Completes Sixth Flight Mission - top government contractors - best government contracting eventLockheed Martin launched a production-configuration of its precision-guided, anti-ship standoff missile from a U.S. Air Force bomber aircraft during a recent test flight.

The company said Monday its Long Range Anti-Ship Missile hit a maritime target and met test objectives following deployment from the 337th Test Squadron’s B-1B Bomber over the Sea Range at Point Mugu, California.

David Helsel, LRASM program director at Lockheed’s missiles and fire control business, said the missile has completed six consecutive flight missions.

An air-launched version of the missile works to address the U.S. Navy‘s anti-surface warfare Increment I requirement slated for integration with the B-1B later this year and the F/A-18E/F sometime in 2019.

Lockheed derived LRASM from the extended-range model of its Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile system.
