First launch of Sagem AASM missile with terminal laser guidance a success

Sagem (Safran group) and the French defense procurement agency DGA has successfully carried out the first launch of a 250 kg AASM modular air-to-ground weapon with terminal laser guidance, in a demonstrator version.

The test launch was carried out at medium altitude by a Rafale fighter.

The target coordinates were shifted by 100 meters but the weapon still hit it with an accuracy within less than one meter due to the laser guidance.
