The US Navy’s Naval Air Systems Command awarded on 09 June Lockheed Martin Missile and Fire Control a $32 million contract for the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) AGM-158C-2 development, integration and testing.

Apart from the LRASM, it will also support a combined Anti-Surface Warfare (ASuW) and Joint Air-to-Surface Standoff Missile (JASSM) strike capability for the navy.

The work, which will be performed in Orlando, Florida, and Troy, Alabama, is planned to get completed by July 2024.
