Description: The VLA Extended Range (VLA-ER) is an improved variant of the Vertical Launch ASROC (VLA) missile adding a wing glide kit to extend its maximum range four to five times. VLA-ER reuses 90 percent of components from basic VLA and includes a common configuration allowing for both ship and aircraft launch. The new missile has been designed to engage existing and future underwater threats. As of early July 2009, Lockheed Martin was still undergoing development of the VLA-ER missile system.
