PACIFIC OCEAN (April 22, 2017) The Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Jackson (LCS 6) fires a SeaRAM missile at an aerial drone during a test off the coast of Southern Calif. The drone was simulating an anti-ship missile as part of a combat system ship qualification trials event to demonstrate the self-defense capability of the ship against an aerial target. Paired with advanced sonar and mine hunting capabilities, LCS provides a major contribution, as well a more diverse set of options to commanders across the spectrum of operations.
