Raytheon's SeaRAM anti-ship missile defense system successfully performed tests on the Navy's Self Defense Test Ship off the coast of Southern California
The Raytheon SeaRAM Anti-ship Missile Defense System is a low-risk evolution of the proven Phalanx Block 1B Close-In Weapon System and the Rolling Airframe Missile.
The series of two shots included one in which two supersonic missiles were inbound simultaneously, flying in complex, evasive maneuvers. In both flights, SeaRAM detected, tracked and engaged the threats, and fired Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2 guided missiles which successfully intercepted the targets.
