BAE Systems to Supply Advanced Missile Seekers for LRASM

BAE Systems received a US$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 combines extended range with increased survivability and lethality to deliver long-range precision strike capabilities. It is designed to detect and destroy specific targets within groups of ships by employing advanced technologies that reduce dependence on intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance platforms, network links, and GPS navigation in contested environments.
 
This LRASM seeker contract continues the transition of the programme from Accelerated Acquisition to Low-Rate Production. BAE Systems has delivered more than 50 systems to date that have demonstrated superior technical performance over multiple test events.
