The recent test showed that the missile, which is intended to detect, recognize, locate, and engage advanced land-based emitter targets, met its goals. Gordon Turner, vice president of Northrop Grumman's advanced weapons division, claims that the AARGM-ER continues to show off its increased range, readiness, and efficiency. In the words of Turner, "AARGM-ER provides the Navy with a demonstrated capability to stay ahead of adversary threats."
