1 min read

The U.S. Navy has tested the Harpoon Block II+ missile’s compatibility with the F/A-18 aircraft’s updated software.

The compatibility test with the System Configuration Set H12E update was held Monday at Point Mugu Sea Test Range, California, the Naval Air System Command said Wednesday.

“Harpoon Block II+ expands on a legacy of over 40 years of service,” said Capt. John Dougherty, program manager for precision strike weapons at the Navy.

NAVAIR noted the missile employs a modern GPS guidance kit, in-flight update ability, augmented targeting systems and electronic countermeasure resistance capacities.

The weapon is designed to launch from multiple platforms.

The Navy expects the missile system to be fully deployable in late 2018 fiscal year.
