Raytheon unveiled the new generation High-speed Anti-Radiation Missile today. It's a ramjet powered 10" diameter missile, that they are trying to design to fit into any internal weapons bay the USAF employs, and any outboard station on external pylons. The guidance system will be significantly upgraded as well. It will have satellite based navigation, fiber optic gyroscopes, and new software.

Raytheon is hoping to compete against the US Navy proposal for the Alliant Technologies AGM-88E Advanced Anti-Radiation Guidance Missile (AARGM).


Raytheon today unveiled a new concept for revolutionizing the accuracy, range, speed and perhaps even the mission of the quarter-century-old AGM-88 high-speed anti-radiation missile (HARM).

The concept replaces the AGM-88’s dual-thrust rocket motor with a dramatically more powerful ramjet engine. Guidance is also upgraded with satellite-based navigation, fiber-optic gyroscopes and new software.
