MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESTA (BNS): BAE Systems has conducted a successful rocket ballistic flight test of its 5-inch Long Range Land Attack Projectile (LRLAP).

The 5-inch LRLAP is a GPS-guided projectile being developed for the MK 45 Mod 2 and 4 naval guns on board Arleigh Burke-class destroyers and Ticonderoga-class cruisers within the US Navy fleet.

"The rocket ballistic test met all predicted performance parameters during its flight," the company said in a statement.

BAE Systems has previously carried out component and subsystem testing and plans to carry out further tests of the LRLAP in the upcoming months.

The LRLAP is being designed to allow deployed surface ships to strike shore-based targets at ranges that exceed 50 nautical miles, it said.
