In addition to Emu recent post it looks like the upgraded Asraam will still use a IR seeker rather than the RF seeker used by Camm (Sea Ceptor etc), it would be interesting to know if the upgraded Asraam will have the Camm 2 way data link.

Quote:
The ASRAAM is a short-range, infrared-guided missile capable of flying at Mach 3. Its new version will be manufactured at MBDA’s Bolton, Lancashire site. It has the same performance characteristics as the current configuration, but benefits from an MBDA seeker – a Raytheon one is currently used – that includes its own cooling system instead of using the aircraft’s.

Jeff Bezos just unveiled his new rocket. And it’s a monster.



On a personal note, that seems to be a somewhat ambitious schedule. Then again, I've never launched a rocket, let alone recovered one, so who knows.

Just for comparison, Blue Origin's current "New Shepard" should by roughly one third the height of the Ariane 5.
