Raytheon’s SLAMRAAM Passes Test

Raytheon’s (NYSE: RTN) Surface Launched Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile system, or SLAMRAAM, successfully destroyed an unmanned aerial vehicle target and intercepted a cruise missile target at a facility in the southwestern United States.

According to the firm, “the limited user test-firing data will be used to validate key system capabilities and potential enhancements in addition to providing operational assessment.”

“Successful completion of this test firing demonstrates the maturity of the design and its operational capability when in the hands of soldiers, ” said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president for Patriot Programs at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems. “SLAMRAAM is the most cost-effective system in development to combat the increasing unmanned aerial vehicle and cruise missile threat to our deployed forces, high-value fixed assets and population centers.”
