German manufacturer RAMSYS GmbH is being awarded an 82 Million Euro contract for design and development of a rolling airframe missile (RAM) Block 2B guided missile round pack.
The RAM guided missile weapon system is co-developed and co-produced under an international cooperative program between the governments of the U.S. and the Federal Republic of Germany.
RAM is a missile system designed to provide anti-ship missile defense for multiple ship platforms. This contract will be funded 100 percent by the Federal Republic of Germany.
Work will be mostly performed in Ueberlingen, Germany and is expected to be completed by June 2021. Federal Republic of Germany funding in the amount of €82,277,709 will be obligated at the time of award and will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year.
The RAM system is designed to destroy anti-ship missiles. Its passive radio frequency and infrared guidance design provide high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously.
According to Raytheon which originally developed the missile, the Block 2 variant, the latest evolution in the development of the RAM missile, has a larger rocket motor, advanced control section and an enhanced RF receiver capable of detecting the quietest of threat emitters. The improvements make the missile two and a half times more maneuverable, with one and a half times the effective intercept range.
