Northrop Grumman has completed the third live fire test of its AGM-88G Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile Extended Range (AARGM-ER), the company writes in a press release. The US Navy launched the missile from an F/A-18 SUPER HORNET aircraft. The test took place at the Point Mugu Sea Range off the coast of California. Utilising its emitter acquisition system, the missile detected a land-based threat and engaged the threat system.
AARGM-ER achieved a Milestone C Decision (authorisation for Low-Rate Initial Production (LRIP)) in September 2021. According to the company, LRIP Lot 1 AARGM-ER missiles are currently in-production to support Initial Operational Capability (IOC) fielding. The missile is being integrated onto the Navy’s F/A-18E/F SUPER HORNET and EA-18G GROWLER aircraft. This is in addition integration with the F-35.
