The U.S. Air Force has carried out its first successful test of the Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon (AARW), which was launched from a B-52H Stratofortress off the South Carolina Coast. The Air Force stated that the missile met all its test objectives, reaching speeds five times faster than the speed of sound, completing its flight and detonating in its target area.  

“The AARW team successfully designed and tested an air-launched hypersonic missile in five years,” said Brigadier General Jason Bartolomei, Armament Directorate Program chief executive. “I am immensely proud of the tenacity and dedication this team has shown to provide a vital capability to our warfighter.” 

“AARW is designed to enable the U.S. to hold fixed, high-value, time-sensitive targets at risk contested environments,” the Air Force stated.
