RAYTHEON CONDUCTS PAC-3 MISSILE TEST LAUNCH
Raytheon has successfully conducted test firing of two patriot advanced capability-3 (PAC-3) missiles at the White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) in New Mexico, US. Comprising two single firings against single tactical ballistic missile (TBM) representative targets, the test firings form part of the field surveillance programme (FSP). Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems Business Integrated Air and Missile Defence Vice President, Ralph Acaba, said the launch forms part of over 2,500 search track tests and 1,000 Patriot missiles that have been flight tested under real world combat and test conditions. “Patriot’s successful track record is testament to its continual testing and evolution,” Acaba said.
