A Standoff Land Attack Missile - Expanded Response (SLAM-ER) was launched from an F/A-18C aircraft Sept. 29, and directly impacted a simulated radar van on San Nicolas Island, located in the Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division Sea Test Range, Calif. Missile launch and control was executed by Lt. Cmdr.
The SLAM was launched at medium altitude in a long range profile and impacted its target at a steep angle.
Data link video from the SLAM, which provided a bomb damage assessment of the previous SLAM ER impact and bomb impact assessment of the SLAM, was received and recorded by the launch aircraft.

A Harpoon missile on display at the USS Bowfin museum at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.
Originally developed for the US Navy to serve as its basic anti-ship missile for fleet-wide use, the AGM-84D has been adapted for use on Air Force B-52G bombers, which can carry from eight to 12 of the missiles.
The multi-mission Block II is deployable from all current Harpoon missile system platforms with either existing command and launch equipment or the new Advanced Harpoon Weapon Control System, or AHWCS.

Ballistic missiles, by contrast, shed their rocket motors once the missiles are propelled outside the atmosphere, after which they pursue an unpowered ballistic course to the target.
The aerodynamic stability of the cruise missile permits the use of less sophisticated and therefore less costly guidance-and-control methods than is the case for ballistic missiles, which must undergo the stresses of reentry and high speed.
Exaggeration of the cruise missile threat is reflected in the general tendency to focus on the individual components of land-attack cruise missile capability—particularly the implica- tions and impact of the availability of GPS for cruise missile guidance—without giving sufficient attention to the challenges facing the third world in systems integration.

SLAM is based on the highly successful and reliable Harpoon anti-ship missile, with a Global Positioning System-aided Inertial Navigation System (GPS/INS) for mid-course guidance, and a Maverick Imaging Infrared sensor and a Walleye data link for precise, "man-in-the-loop" terminal guidance.
The missile's high off-boresight capability can be coupled to a helmet-mounted cueing system, which will revolutionize the way in which air-to-air missiles are employed.
Block 0 missiles and launchers are in their final production run and are on schedule; the missile has had successful intercepts in 95 of 99 production-acceptance and ship-qualification tests.

 Standoff Land Attack Missile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Standoff Land Attack Missile or SLAM is an over-the-horizon, all-weather cruise missile which grew out of the United States Navy's Harpoon anti-ship missile in the 1970s.
In its current incarnation, the SLAM-ER (expanded response), it is capable of attacking land and sea targets automatically, at long-range (150+ miles), and can also be controlled remotely from the air.
It relies on military-grade GPS and infrared imaging for navigation.

The Standoff Land Attack Missile - Expanded Response, or SLAM-ER, is a day/night, adverse weather, over-the-horizon, precision strike missile for the U.S. Military and its allies.
The pilot views live missile video with the ATA aimpoint annotated, and can allow the missile to hit the ATA aimpoint without intervention, or make refinements to the final impact point with SMAU commands.
The missile computes target velocity from the updates and keeps the moving target stabilized within the seeker field of view.

 The US Navy
The AGM-84K Standoff Land Attack Missile-Expanded Response (SLAM-ER), an evolutionary upgrade to the combat-proven SLAM, is an air-launched, day/night, adverse weather, over-the-horizon, precision strike missile.
Because of emerging operational requirements, the Standoff Land Attack Missile (SLAM) was developed as a derivative of the Harpoon.
This baseline SLAM missile system was developed and fielded in less than 48 months, and was successfully employed by F/A-18 and A-6 aircrews in Desert Storm even before operational testing had begun.

All 500 missiles will be deployed in existing silos (hardened to withstand an estimated 2,000lb per square inch blast overpressure, little protection against today's more accurate missiles) in the interior of the country.
The missile is ejected from the silo by a cold gas generator which lofts the missile tens ofm into the air before the main engines ignite.
Guidance is similar to the air-launched cruise missile, with terrain contour matching (tercom) in which the missile has a digital map of the terrain it is to fly over, and follows it at low altitude to the target.

 STANDOFF LAND-ATTACK MISSILE EXPANDED RESPONSE (SLAM ER) - FY01 Activity
The Standoff Land-Attack Missile- Expanded Response (SLAM-ER) is a deployed precision tactical weapon that provides Joint Force and Carrier Battle Group Commanders with a standoff precision strike capability and is launched from carrier battle group aircraft.
Initial developmental tests suffered from missile system failures not related to ATA: first, a hang fire and then failure of the missile wings to deploy after launch.
DOTandE will also assess overall missile reliability given the two missile reliability failures that occurred during initial ATA tests: one missile was a hang fire and the other missile failed to deploy its wings after launch.

The Navy’s Standoff Land Attack Missile — Expanded Response (SLAM-ER) program successfully conducted its first developmental test launch of a SLAM-ER equipped with the new Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) capability today at the Naval Air Warfare Center, Weapons Division (NAWCWD), located at China Lake California.
Keith Henry who piloted a second F/A-18C/D utilized the cockpit display cues provided by the missile’s ATA system to identify and prosecute the target from a standoff range exceeding 50 miles.
The ATA system, which adds a small, internal hardware module to the missile as well as missile and mission planning software modifications, provides SLAM-ER’s standoff control pilot with real-time target cueing on the F/A-18’s cockpit display, aiding the pilot in finding the desired target and aimpoint.
