The ARRW Booster Test Flight-3 was the program's 12th flight and the third release demonstration. a B-52H Stratofortress was used as test bed.
The AGM-183A weapon system reached hypersonic speeds, and primary and secondary objectives were met. The primary and secondary objectives of the AGM-183A weapon system were achieved at hypersonic speeds. The test showed that booster performance expanded the operational range successfully.The ARRW's primary function is to eliminate high-value targets in a short time. In addition, it will increase the effectiveness of precision-strike weapon systems by facilitating quick attacks on heavily defended land targets.US Air Force Conducts Another Hypersonic Missile TestThe booster's performance and operational range were demonstrated in the test. The ARRW is intended to be capable of destroying high-value, time-sensitive targets. It will also enhance the capabilities of precision-strike weapon systems by enabling rapid response strikes against heavily defended land targets.US Air Force Conducts Another Hypersonic Missile Test
