Designed to upgrade the AGM-88 High-Speed, Anti-Radiation Missile system (HARM), AARGM features an advanced, digital, anti-radiation homing sensor, millimeter wave (MMW) radar terminal seeker, precise Global Positioning System/Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) guidance, net-centric connectivity, and Weapon Impact Assessment transmit (WIA). Missile Impact Transmitter capability is available for approved customers. The missile offers extended-range engagement, as well as organic, in-cockpit emitter targeting capability and situational awareness.

New capabilities for the warfighter include:
-Anti-radar strike with advanced signal processing and vastly improved frequency coverage, detection range and field of view
-Time-critical, standoff strike with supersonic GPS/INS point-to-point or point-to-MMW-terminal guidance
-Missile-impact zone control to prevent collateral damage through tightly coupled, Digital Terrain Elevation Database-aided GPS/INS
-Counter-emitter shutdown through active MMW-radar terminal guidance
-WIA transmission prior-to-impact for bomb damage assessment

Northrop Grumman has teamed with MBDA to provide this advanced, cost-effective weapon system to U.S. and approved allied customers.
