BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin have supplied the U.S. Air Force with long-range anti-ship missiles for the B-1B bomber aircraft, which reached early operational capability ahead of schedule.

LRASM is equipped with BAE-built sensor and targeting technology that works to detect and engage adversarial warships, the company said Monday.

Bruce Konigsberg, product area director of radio frequency sensors at BAE. said the company designed its sensor system to help U.S. warfighters counter "protected, high-value maritime targets."

The service branch accepted the missile systems after completing integration, simulation and flight tests aimed to demonstrate mission readiness of the technology.

BAE will produce more than 50 additional LRASM sensors for integration onto the U.S. Navy's F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.
