A Joint Air-to-Ground Missile (JAGM) fired from a unmanned aircraft system hit a moving truck target at Dugway Proving Ground, a first. Col. James Romero reports the missile flew at a range of slightly over 8 kilometers and a “nominal altitude.” The JAGM is designed to hit both stationary and moving targets, and should reach initial operational fielding in 2018, according to Romero.
