Lockheed Martin has successfully tested DAGRTM rockets from an airborne AH-6 Little Bird helicopter at the Yuma Army Proving Ground in Arizona, US.

The DAGR four-pack launch canister was mounted on the outboard rail of a modified XM299 launcher carried by the AH-6 Mission Enhanced Little Bird test platform.

The Little Bird firings were performed as a running fire using a ground designator. The second trial involved using the Little Bird’s onboard MX-15D1 targeting system.

The DAGR rocket proved accurate in hitting the laser aim point in both tests.

The DAGR system has demonstrated its precision strike and manoeuvre capabilities, hitting short- and long-range off-axis targets within minimal distance of the laser-designated aim point.

The rocket system is compatible with the M299 family of launchers and offers integration on all rotary-wing Hellfire platforms, including the Apache, Little Bird, Kiowa, Blackhawk, Cobra and Tiger helicopters.

A mixed load of HELLFIRE IIs and DAGRs can be mounted on the same launcher.

The first test on DAGR rockets from the AH-64D Apache helicopter was announced successful in March.

Lockheed Martin is testing DAGRTM Rockets as part of a $30m contract to lead the US Army’s modernisation of the M299 launcher family.
