The Air Force Life Cycle Management Center has released a request for information as the armament systems development division develops a trade space analysis for a new maritime strike weapon.

White papers are due Sept. 30. It's not clear whether the center has a draft acquisition strategy or when a solicitation for proposals may be released.

The RFI comes as the Air Force looks to ramp up production of the only known weapon in its inventory that's specifically designed to strike maritime targets -- Lockheed Martin's Long-Range Anti-Ship Missile.
