Ramjet is alive and well and living in USAF

USAF reveals airborne live-firing trials of ramjet missile
Airborne live-firing trials have been revealed of a hitherto unseen United States ramjet-powered air-to-surface weapon. Under the Higher-Speed Anti-radiation missile Demonstration (HSAD) programme, ATK and the US Navy (USN) have combined a ramjet motor with the dual-mode seeker developed for the AGM-88E advanced anti-radiation guided missile (AARGM). The HSAD is a parallel effort to the other various SEAD (suppression of enemy air defences) systems evolving in the US today

I wonder how this will compare to the european Meteor ramjet powered stand off missile being developed for the Typhoon.
