Successful test for Lockheed missile system

Lockheed Martin, the global security and aerospace company based in Bethesda, said it has successfully demonstrated its Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) dual-mode guidance section during a second test at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. During the test, the rail-mounted JAGM flew 6.2 kilometers and initially acquired the target using its precision strike, semi-active laser. The dual-mode guidance section then engaged its millimeter wave radar, and the moving target was destroyed. Lockheed Martin is developing the JAGM system as part of the Army’s 27-month Continued Technology Development program.
