It was developed for the Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force with the Navy as the lead service. The AGM-88 HARM System evolved from the AGM-45 Shrike and AGM-78 Standard Arm missiles, incorporating the more desirable features of each while providing additional features and enhanced capabilities. The AGM-88 HARM is in the Operations and Support Phase of the Defense Acquisition System. The AGM-88 HARM consists of guidance, warhead, control, and rocket motor sections, wings, and fins. The three versions of the AGM-88 HARM being used are the AGM-88A, AGM- 88B, and the AGM-88C. All three versions are compatible with Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 and EA-6B Aircraft and with Air Force F-16 Aircraft. Configurations of the AGM-88 HARM consist of changes in hardware and software referred to as either Block I, II, III, IV, or V. Configurations include: AGM-88A Blocks I and II, AGM-88B Blocks II and III, AGM-88C Block IV, AGM-88B Block IIIA and AGM-88C Block V. Initial Operating Capability was attained in 1983 for the AGM-88A, 1986 for the AGM-88B, and 1994 for the AGM-88C. An AGM-88D Block VI is planned for FY03. Information pertaining to the AGM-88D will be included in future iterations of this NTSP as information becomes available. Refer to the Program Manager, Air 242. The AGM-88 HARM maintenance concept is based on an overall objective to assure All- Up-Rounds are available to fulfill commitments of operational activities and provide the means to restore unserviceable missiles to serviceable condition with minimal downtime. Maintenance requirements are allocated to the organizational, intermediate, and depot levels of maintenance as defined in the Naval Ordnance Maintenance Management Program (NOMMP), Office of the Chief of Naval Operations Instruction (OPNAVINST) 8000.16 (series). Workload associated with the AGM-88 HARM Missile does not increase existing manning levels. The HARM training concept is divided into organizational and intermediate level maintenance based on OPNAVINST 8000.16 (series). Operator training is provided to aviators, Weapons System Officers, and Electronic Countermeasures Officers at the appropriate Fleet Readiness Squadron. Platform weapons school organizational level training is provided to maintenance personnel at the appropriate Maintenance Training Unit (MTU) and Strike Fighter Weapons Schools. Intermediate level maintenance personnel are trained at the appropriate MTU....
