LRASM - Long Range Anti-Ship Missile - AGM-158C
also known as OASuW Increment 1 / Lockheed Martin / DARPA
 
 
 
The LRASM (OASuW Increment 1) program aims to reduce dependence on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms, network links, and GPS navigation in electronic warfare environments. Autonomous guidance algorithms should allow the LRASM to use less-precise target cueing data to pinpoint specific targets in the contested domain. The program also focuses on innovative terminal survivability approaches and precision lethality in the face of advanced counter measures.

Design
The LRASM program began in 2009 to ensure that the United States leads technology advancement for best-in-world operational Anti-Surface Warfare capability into the future. LRASM leverages the state-of-the-art AGM-158 Joint Air to Surface Standoff Missile Extended Range (JASSM-ER) airframe and incorporates additional sensors and systems to achieve a stealthy and survivable subsonic cruise missile.
Features
Armed with a proven penetrator and blast-fragmentation warhead, LRASM cruises autonomously, day or night, in all weather conditions. The missile employs a multi-modal sensor, weapon data link, and an enhanced digital anti-jam Global Positioning System to detect and destroy specific targets within a group of ships. LRASM technology reduces dependence on ISR platforms, network links and GPS navigation in aggressive electronic warfare environments. This autonomous capability means the weapon can use gross target cueing data to locate, track and attack its target in denied environments.
Platforms
  • Air:
    U.S. Air Force B-1B Lancer
    U.S. Navy F/A-18E/F Super Hornet
  • Surface:
    Compatible with MK 41 Vertical Launch System (VLS). The missile is fitted with a Mk-114 rocket motor booster for vertical launch.
Sensors
Developed by BAE Systems, the LRASM advanced long range sensor is designed for situations where access to the airspace is made difficult for Allied Forces by the enemy. The sensor uses advanced electronic technologies to detect targets within a complex signal environment, and then calculates precise target locations for the missile control unit.
Passive RF sensors that allows the missile to both find its way through enemy defenses and pick out the right target to attack.
Propulsion
1x Williams International F107-WR-105 turbofan
