US strategic bombers armed with LRASM missiles

77
The company Lockheed Martin announced the beginning of deliveries to the US Air Force long-range anti-ship missiles LRASM (Long Range Anti-Ship Missiles), reports Mil.Press FLOT.



Work on the creation of LRASM began in 2009 year. After the completion of all stages of testing, they were put into service of strategic bombers B-1В.

According to David Hells, the head of the LRASM project at Lockheed Martin, the assignment of the operational readiness status to the missile was the culmination of the successful interaction of engineers with the Air Force and the US Navy.

This event is an excellent example of cooperation, which allows you to master the latest weapons in the shortest possible time,
added on.

Hels said that the LRASM rocket is capable of detecting, identifying and destroying sea targets among groups of ships, even in the absence of a GPS signal and communication.

The range of its use is up to 930 km, the weight of the warhead is 450 kg. It is assumed that one rocket can sink (make it incapable) a ship with a displacement of up to 9 thousand tons.

In addition, the ammunition passed tests for compatibility with the Mk.41 launcher and in the near future could replace the Garpun missiles on ships, which "have lost their relevance in modern conditions."

LRASM missiles are also planned to equip carrier-based fighters F / A and F-35C.

Recall supersonic B-1B "Lancer" can carry a combat load up to 56 tons. Designed for low-altitude air defense breakthrough of the enemy, which distinguishes it from the B-52 bomber.

    According to available data, the LRASM missile represents the development of the invisible cruise missile JASSM. The fuselage is made based on the requirements of minimum radar visibility, with the active use of composite carbon materials. The rocket is driven by a turbofan engine Williams International F107-WR-105, and should have a range of up to 1000 km, according to the project.

    The missile is equipped with a penetrating high-explosive fragmentation warhead weighing 454 kg.

    Of particular interest is the missile control system. Due to the significant range and subsonic speed of the flight, the project is subject to the same problems as its predecessor TASM and generally all the same - during the flight of the rocket, the target can move a considerable distance from the intended area of ​​location. Therefore, the LRASM control system should allow the rocket to carry out various target search schemes (movement with a “snake”, a spiral, etc.), and its on-board equipment should identify detected objects in a difficult jamming environment. It is assumed that a rocket launched into the search area will be able to stay in the air for a long time, identifying detected objects until it detects a ship similar in characteristics to a given target, and then attacks it.

    When launching several, you need to exchange information, carry out an independent search and transmit to each other the coordinates of the detected target, form a general attack scheme taking into account various conditions. Missiles should also be capable of carrying out complex evasion maneuvers, the use of electronic warfare measures to break through the enemy’s air defense. The main goal of the development is to ensure that the missile can operate autonomously, without preliminary programming the reference points of the course, and to detect the target without external target designation.

    I hope ours will find a suitable scrap against this muck.

      At high altitude, even this small stealth rocket from a composite, the S-400 will see for 90 kilometers. True, at a low altitude much later - for 30 kilometers. Nevertheless, it will manage to bring down a few. It remains to put the S-400 (and preferably the S-500 or S-700 from Zhirik) on ships

      PS I'm lying, further than 90. For 90 it's a Su-35S with a tiny passive radar

        Here https://topwar.ru/131602-o-revolyucii-v-voenno-morskom-iskusstve-ssha-pkr-lrasm.html they write that it flies at an altitude of 20 meters and is found for 20 km.
        In general, we can state the following. The LRASM anti-ship missile is a very formidable weapon of naval combat, at least equal to, but rather, still superior to what the Russian Navy has, including even such "advanced" weapons as Onyx and Caliber. In 2018, when the Americans adopt the LRASM, for the first time in the history of the confrontation, our fleet will lose the superiority in the long-range anti-ship missiles that it possessed for many decades.

        And there are no C 400s on the ships yet, but there is a wonderful Willow MANPADS - what the doctor prescribed for these birds

      SMALLER. It is understandable:
      -mass for additional equipment
      -Volume for additional equipment
      And the VLS Launch Cell and APU (pylon) on the aircraft are not dimensionless
      "blacks" are LRASM


      JASSM-ER has a range of 930 km; 580 miles
      LRASM has a range 560 km; 350 miles
      mk added multimode radio frequency sensor and something else
      By contrast, the Air Force JASSM-ER, on which LRASM is based, has a range greater than 500 nautical miles. When converting the land-attack JASSM-ER to the anti-ship LRASM, admitted John, “You're going to lose some range when you add in the sensors and some other capabilities”Needed to hit a moving ship, but it remains a long-range weapon.


      The LRASM is thought to have a range of some 300 nm, three times that of the Harpoon but still about 200 nm less than the extended-range version of the JASSM on which it is based... The difference is due to the multiple, more sophisticated sensors that are integrated on the LRASM, which can radar, radio-frequency and infrared means for homing on target.

      These missiles can search for targets autonomously: using a scanning IR video camera.
      If before there was a miss, then a miss - the missiles went into the "milk", then this one will turn around and go to the repeated search and capture of the target.

            What you mean "he" is:

            It works according to the algorithm as follows: Below, the photo no longer climbs (Basic configuration of the infrared seeker and tracker) but the seeker "does not scan"
            On the example of the CC
            1. The image obtained by the IR camera (but as we see it, the guidance system of course does not have this).

            2. Image after double closed filter processing
            (but as we see it, the guidance system of course does not have this).

            3. Segmentation in drops (Here with this, well, of course with the figure of this) BTsVK works

            ===================================
            And the GOS "sees" and the BTsVK works with histograms of invariant signs of drops corresponding to the base of targets (solid) and interference (puktiro).
            Those. with a large number of blobs.

            For modern aircraft, the database is such that it does not "interfere" with the BCVK and they are forced to contact the ground-based computing center

            There is no "video image"

            In AGM-158C, the head works with a digital image of a radio-reflected signal, and the IR sensor is a second channel, coupled with it, so that the head is not distracted by "dummies": interference from metalized foil and other inflatable toys

                  So, does Lrasm still use active radar?

                  in the final stage.
                  First, an on-board passive reflected radio receiver + high-quality external data through a data channel from external sources (P-8 Poseidon, E / A-18G Growler, MQ-4C Triton or EP-3)
                  then
                  Once it is in an area where enemies may be operating, or if it 'sniffed' an enemy radar belonging to a ship it was programmed to attack, it would activate its radar, sweeping the area quickly while hopping frequencies in order to remain undetected. It could also have a 'radar picture' sent to it from virtually any aircraft or ship via data-link, allowing it keep its radar in standby mode, thus giving the enemy one less chance of detecting it. The missile's networking abilities, via its data-link allow the missile to maintain total emission silence all the way through its terminal attack if external targeting data is available.

                  If that data is not available, and LRASM uses its own radar, once LRASM picked up a radar return that matches that of an enemy ship in its memory banks full of 3D targeting models, it would begin prosecuting its attack, planning a route based on the threats in the area and its target's unique defenses.

                  As soon as he reaches the zone where the radio emission was fixed (or the zone where external sources brought him out), he turns on his radar, quickly scans the target, changing the frequency, turns off the active radar, drops sharply and goes to the target ..

                  If external sources are not available or passive reception, LRASM uses its own radar as soon as it detects a radar response that matches the etholan of an enemy ship in its memory banks filled with three-dimensional models, it will start chasing the target, planning a route based on its location in the area ... .

            Then you can forget about "stealth" - thrown away money. And the faster the rocket flies, the fewer search maneuvers it will have to make, because the target will not have time to move too much.
            It would be better if they put an EW station and a radio head on it - it would have been more sense.

              Sub-sound speed is very economical. And the supersonic dash consumes all the fuel. Therefore, even supersonic anti-ship missiles go almost the entire route on subsonic. The radio head is easier to jam and more difficult to distinguish between real and false targets (a cloud of aluminum foil, for example). Therefore, this is not the most efficient way.

                The opposite is true. To the area where the target is located, the rockets fly at a very high altitude in supersonic or hypersonic (zircon). When approaching, they slow down and look for the target. It is impossible to bring them down at this height. Having found the target, the rocket turns off the radar and goes down, flying to the ship at an extremely low altitude.

          Do you have any idea what a "source of interference" is? This is not a point in space with specific coordinates, but just an azimuth. There is, of course, a fraction of the probability of hitting the target, but most likely to fly by, and the radio fuse simply will not work.

      "The cost of one launch (including everything there) 9M723 from 108 million to 113 million rubles in 2015"

      AGM-158C
      Weight 2,500 lb (1,100 kg) (air-launch)

    The AGM-158A, -158B, -158C family of "light" airborne missile launchers is that rare case when the US military-industrial complex managed to make a system that is truly unique in its capabilities, as we say in our country: "unparalleled in the world." The 158C version is especially sad for the fleet, with a massive launch of which literally from any carrier can only be handled by large ships with 3-4 echelons of air defense and sufficient channeling. For the overwhelming majority of modern "small" ships of the coastal zone, these missiles are a death sentence. I would especially like to note the "thoughtful" placement of AK-630 gun mounts (one on each side), on some ship models that do not have overlapping control zones, but have blind spots, and spin as you want.

    OK. I understand everything ... stealth this and that ... but explain to me such a feint with your ears ... an inconspicuous subsonic missile "saws" for more than an hour somewhere in the target area ... Yes, her damn infection is not visible ... but here it is she went to the target area ... but then she needs to turn on the seeker and this target (which managed to hit the road for about eleven miles in an hour) to look for, walk like a snake, circulate, etc. ... And then it starts to glow on all passive scanners like a New Year tree ... and it is elementary to decorate it, since it is just a pleasure to aim at a working radar station ... And what the hell is it then? Either the rocket is in a passive mode according to the Jeepies data (but then it will be effective only against stationary targets, or does it have an active seeker and then the sense of its "invisibility"?

      Not so simple. The LRASM radar switches on to the active mode for a short time, almost impulse at pseudo-random frequencies to scan targets (for the F-35, also, by the way). Do not catch a missile on this radiation.

          RCC can be brought down, but this is not an easy task. Both by detection and by physical destruction itself. It requires powerful centimeter-range ship radars, and AWACS aircraft, and fighters in the air, and tactical missile defense.

        And this is understandable, not news ... But there is radiation, then you can aim ... The active seeker will always emit ... And the frequency shift will not help here - it will be more difficult to put active interference ... but here all you need is a point and it displacement from where it radiates to count ... So what about "not in time .." I would not get excited ... The speed is not the same for this "wunderwafle" ... Just for ZRAKov work ....

    Where did you get this data about the combat load of up to 56 tons?

    From the Russian Wikipedia - where 60,7 tons are indicated - unreasonably summing the combat load in the internal compartments and on the external pylons. If you look at the sources (link 56 in the article on the fact book about B-1B), then the load in the internal and external compartments is indicated separately) and it is not summarized.

    In the English version of Wikipedia, the maximum load on the external suspension is 23 tons and in the internal compartments 34 tons, depending on the destination, and there is a link (178) to the source - the Boeing site, and there these figures are also not summarized.

    The maximum bomb load of the B-1B is 34t like its predecessor, the B-1A.

    The aircraft with the maximum bomb load today is the Tu-160 with 40 tons.
