TYSONS CORNER, VA, Feb. 22, 2022 — An air-to-surface missile system designed by Northrop Grumman (NYSE: NOC) for radar detection and targeting missions has undergone a second live-fire test with the U.S. Navy, ExecutiveBiz reported.
An F/A-18 Super Hornet aircraft launched the AGM-88G Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile Extended Range to demonstrate its capability to identify and target a land-based emitting radar system stationed at the range on San Nicholas Island.
“This flight test further demonstrated the critical capability of AARGM-ER to precisely engage long-range threats, while enabling launching aircrew to remain at a safe distance,” said Mary Petryszyn, corporate vice president, president of Northrop’s defense systems business.
