Raytheon’s Seasparrow Block 2 Missile Completes 1st NATO-Run Live Flight Test

TYSONS CORNER, VA, July 10, 2018 — The Raytheon-built (NYSE: RTN) Evolved Seasparrow Missile Block 2 system has undergone its first live-fire test during a demonstration flight overseen by NATO’s Seasparrow Project Office, ExecutiveBiz reported Monday.
