BAE Systems received a $60 million contract from Lockheed Martin to manufacture and deliver additional advanced missile seekers for the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM).
The seeker comprises long-range sensors and targeting technology that help the stealthy missile find and engage protected maritime targets in challenging electromagnetic environments.
LRASM is a precision-guided stealth missile capable of semi-autonomously detecting and identifying targeted enemy ships. The precision routing and guidance technology of the sensor which does not rely exclusively on intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance systems, networking links, or GPS navigation enables the missile to operate effectively in contested domains and all weather conditions, day or night.
This LRASM seeker contract continues the transition of the program from Accelerated Acquisition to Low Rate Production.
