A Lockheed Martin PAC-3 Missile

WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M (BNS): A Lockheed Martin PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (PAC-3 MSE) Missile successfully detected, tracked and intercepted a tactical ballistic missile (TBM) target at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, as part of a U S Army-led flight test.

The PAC-3 Missile is a high-velocity interceptor that uses hit-to-kill technology to defend against incoming threats, including TBMs, cruise missiles and aircraft.

The flight test was carried out on 17 March 2016.

"The PAC-3 MSE continues to demonstrate its reliability and hit-to-kill capability," said Scott Arnold, vice president of PAC-3 programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.

"The enhancements of the MSE will provide the warfighter with the tools needed to defend against current and evolving threats."

Building on the battle-proven PAC-3 Missile, the PAC-3 MSE brings a larger, dual-pulse solid rocket motor, larger control fins and an upgraded support system.

These enhancements nearly double the missile's reach, and dramatically improve performance against missile threats, a Lockheed Martin statement said.
