DAGR, Hellfire tested at Eglin

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Lockheed Martin successfully fired HELLFIRE and DAGR missiles from its Long Range Surveillance and Attack Vehicle (LRSAV) turreted weapon system during recent ground-to-ground tests at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla. The LRSAV ground-vehicle weapon system uses advanced missile and weapon control-system technologies and a newly developed 15-inch, spherical, mast-mounted electro-optical/infrared sensor to enable targeting. In the tests the vehicle-mounted LRSAV launched a HELLFIRE II missile from 6.4 km and a DAGR missile from 3.5 km. Both missiles successfully impacted their targets. An AH-64D Apache helicopter with Lockheed Martin's Modernized Target Acquisition Designation Sight/Pilot Nigh Vision Sensor was used to remotely designate the short-range target.
