Giving the Warfighter an Edge in Today’s Complex Environment
Northrop Grumman to Provide New Strike Missile Capability for Fifth-Generation Aircraft and Beyond
Advanced Strike Weapon Solutions
Northrop Grumman provides high-speed, long-range, strike weapons that employ lethal effects at standoff range. Rapid threat engagement that is effective, affordable, and technically mature is critical to our warfighters. Advanced technology to meet today’s mission and tomorrow’s demands.
Our long-range, high-speed strike solutions give warfighters an edge with:
Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile Extended Range (AARGM-ER)
Northrop Grumman’s AARGM-ER is a supersonic, air-launched tactical missile system, the most advanced counter-air-defense system for today’s most modern surface-to-air threats.
AARGM-ER leverages existing AARGM components and adds a new high-performance air vehicle, propulsion system and advanced warhead to provide vital counter-air-defense capability for U.S Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and International Partners.
Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile (AARGM)
AARGM is a supersonic, medium-range, air-launched tactical missile designed to engage and destroy enemy air defenses and time-critical, mobile targets.
An upgrade to the High-Speed Anti-Radiation Missile (HARM) (AGM-88) system, more than 1500 AARGM missiles have been delivered in total to the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Italian Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force, and the German Luftwaffe.
Stand-In Attack Weapon (SiAW) Missile
The U.S. Air Force’s SiAW missile system enables disruption of an Anti-Access/Area Denial (A2/AD) environment through rapid, lethal engagement of relocatable targets.
Northrop Grumman’s SiAW solution can be integrated on a variety of aircraft and leverages lessons learned on the Navy’s AARGM-ER and integration work on the F-35 aircraft.
To provide more rapid development and facilitate future upgrades, Northrop Grumman is using best practices for agile software development, digital engineering, and Weapon Open Systems Architecture (WOSA).
Next-Gen Strike Missile Capabilities
Ground-Based Strike Missiles
Always at the forefront of weapons development, Northrop Grumman is creating new classes of strategically important weapons which achieve overmatch, through enhanced speed, survivability, stand-off range, and lethality so warfighters who go into harm’s way can safely and effectively complete their missions.
Advanced Reactive Strike (AReS), shown left, is a high-speed, autonomous, survivable, surface-launched AARGM-ER, designed to attack land and sea targets in a complex A2/AD environment, offering a new layer of protection for friendly forces.
Maritime Strike Missiles
Northrop Grumman is pioneering missile solutions which leverage our expertise in weapon systems to accelerate capability for the warfighter.
Northrop Grumman’s design is an optimal mix of operational capabilities and affordability. A carrier-suitable, long-range, hypersonic, survivable and lethal weapon system that provides expanded power projection with the means to strike from sanctuary.
Keeping our warfighters safe is top-priority for Northrop Grumman. Engaging from a safe distance, long-range, high-speed strike keep aircrews safe while executing missions. Rapid threat engagement and time-sensitive target strikes takes place outside the range of adversary threats.
