Raytheon and Boeing have successfully completed the third and final joint air-to-ground missile (JAGM) test.
During the test, the JAGM used its millimetre wave radar guidance system to hit a moving target at 6km.
All three guidance systems operated simultaneously and provided telemetry data to enable further analysis of the weapon.
The JAGM includes a fully integrated tri-mode seeker that incorporates semiactive laser, uncooled imaging infrared and millimetre wave guidance.
The weapon also includes technology from Raytheon’s GBU-53/B small-diameter bomb II and Boeing’s Brimstone.
Designed to replace three legacy systems, the JAGM will offer warfighters improved lethality, range, operational flexibility, supportability and cost savings.
