The joint air-to-ground missile (JAGM) system designed for the US Navy’s F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet jet fighters has completed a series of wind tunnel tests conducted by Lockheed Martin at the Nasa Ames Research Centre in Moffett Field, California.

During the tests, different flight environments were simulated for the F/A-18 E/F Super Hornet jet fighter in various JAGM aircraft configurations with its navy fixed-wing launcher.

JAGM provides an accurate, adverse-weather, low-collateral-damage weapon to the manned and unmanned aircraft fleet to fight against next-generation warfare threats.

Lockheed Martin also concluded F/A-18E/F loads tests, and safe launch and separation tests at the Arnold Engineering Development Centre wind tunnel in Tullahoma, Tennessee.
