The Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) Guided Missile Weapon System

LONDON (BNS): Raytheon with its industry partner RAMSYS have completed the missile upgrades and integration testing of the Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2 programme.

The partnership completed five control test vehicle flights and met all upgrade requirements for Block 2.

RAM Block 2 features enhanced kinematics, an evolved radio frequency receiver, a new rocket motor and an upgraded autopilot system. These improvements enable the missile to outpace evolving threats.

"The next-generation RAM will provide the naval war-fighter with an improved ship defence capability," Rick Nelson, vice president of Naval Weapon Systems for Raytheon Missile Systems, said.

The programme will begin guided flight tests later this year and is expected to enter low rate production in late 2012.
