*+-The U.S. Navy recently test-fired a Standard Missile-6 at a supersonic, over-the-horizon target from a desert ship at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, as part of ongoing testing of a next-generation shipboard cruise missile defense system slated to deploy later this year. The SM-6 was functioning as part of a critical emerging technology for […]

*+-Air Force F-15 Eagle recently destroyed a moving –model T-72 tank during a live-fire test of the Small Diameter Bomb II at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., service leaders said. “Just this month we had a successful live fire mission. It was an F-15E that targeted a moving T-72 tank surrogate. We’re still analyzing the […]

*+-The Navy and Raytheon have completed simulated target tracking with a new, more-sensitive radar slated to deploy on destroyers by 2023. Early versions of the Navy’s new Air and Missile Defense Radar, or AMDR, closed what’s called the “track loop” for anti-air warfare and ballistic missile defense simulations, Raytheon officials said. “You put in simulated […]

*+-The Navy and Raytheon recently flight tested software upgrades to the Tomahawk missile with two sea-launched test-firings near China Lake, Calif., designed to shoot the weapon up to high altitudes and assess the weapon’s improved maneuverability. The first test took place from a nuclear submarine — the USS Hampton. The submarine fired a Tomahawk Block […]

*+-FARNBOROUGH, England — Raytheon and the U.S. Air Force are testing a new, high-tech air-dropped bomb that can pinpoint targets from long distances, destroy stationary or moving targets and change course in flight using a two-way data link, officials said at the Farnborough International Airshow. The Small Diameter Bomb II represents a technological departure from […]
