10:00 a.m. – Long Range Anti-Ship Missile: Meeting the OASuW Need
Presented by: Frank St. John, vice president, tactical missiles and combat maneuver systems

Lockheed Martin is combining new technology with proven cruise missile designs to deliver next-generation offensive anti-surface warfare weapons. St. John’s discussion about the Long Range Anti-Ship Missile (LRASM) will highlight recent successes and illustrate how new weapon capabilities can enable deep strike in previously-denied battle environments. Using our mature JASSM-ER as the baseline missile and adding a new sensor suite to attack moving ships at sea, LRASM provides an affordable tactical missile that is capable of air and surface launches.
