In the U.S., conducted successful tests on the vertical launch new anti-ship missiles (ASM) distant acts LRASM (Long Range Anti-Ship Missile).
Rockets company «Lockheed Martin» were launched from a vertical launcher (CPG) Mk 41.
As the company said, «Lockheed Martin», was held four simulators missile launch LRASM, who broke through at start upper lid cells CPG composite material. Purpose of the tests was to verify the output of the CPG missiles without damage to its structure, pitot cover and missiles themselves. The tests were conducted to assess the risk of introduction of new RCC TLU Mk 41 the means «Lockheed Martin» within the integration of new RCC in the ship’s weapons and assess their successful functioning as an offensive anti-ship weapons OASuW (Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare).
LRASM missiles are autonomous precision RCC that run outside the object air defense, and are designed for implementation in the Navy and the U.S. Air Force.
At the end of 2013, «Lockheed Martin» will rocket flight tests variant LRASM BTV (Boosted Test Vehicle) of CPG Mk 41, and in 2014 managed to hold two flight test missiles in federal funds.
PKR newcomer LRASM developed to substitute outdated ASM «Harpoon» of «Boeing». The need for the creation of the modern RCC due to the fact that in the arsenal of the U.S. Navy missiles do not have sufficient range and vulnerable to break modern naval defense systems. The program is designed to show options LRASM guns that could rapidly enter the Naval Forces after flight tests in 2013-2014.
RCC LARSM equipped piercing or high-explosive warhead, is an autonomous all-weather instrument that can be used at any time of day.
Rocket installed multimode seeker, data link, advanced digital Interference-proof satellite navigation system for the detection and destruction of more priority objectives in the ship the order.
