Last week Sagem successfully conducted the third and final qualification test firing of its “one-meter” class armament air-sol modulaire (AASM) modular air-to-ground weapon. The earlier “ten-meter” class AASM, with GPS guidance, has been used in Afghanistan by Rafale fighters. The one-meter weapon adds imaging infrared guidance for greater accuracy. The final IIR AASM test was conducted at the Biscarosse range, and involved a very low-level launch from a range of 16 kilometers. AASM is being marketed for export by MBDA.
