US Navy receives first Standard Missile-6 from Raytheon

Standard Missile-6

TUCSON (BNS): Raytheon has announced the delivery of the first Standard Missile-6 production to US Navy on Monday.

“Now the US Navy has a missile that provides an umbrella of protection against the full spectrum of air threats," Frank Wyatt, vice president of Raytheon's Air and Missile Defence Systems product line said.

SM-6 leverages the legacy Standard Missile airframe and propulsion elements while incorporating the advanced signal processing and guidance control capabilities of Raytheon's Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile.

This missile can use both active and semi-active modes, giving the war-fighter an enhanced ability to reach remote targets.

Five years ago, Raytheon had received the contract from US Navy for the delivery of Standard Missile-6.
