Raytheon has tested a new rocket motor for the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Multi-Azimuth Defense Fast Intercept Round Engagement System, or MAD-FIRES.
The MAD-FIRES interceptor is designed to provide self-defence capability that defeats multiple waves of anti-ship missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as other threats, the company said in a statement Monday.
If fielded, this capability will combine the speed, rapid fire and depth of a gun weapon system with the precision and accuracy of guided missiles, Raytheon said.
The United States (US) Navy has planned to upgrade its fleet of Arleigh Burke destroyers with Raytheons Spy-6 air and missile defense radar. The radars will be replacing Spy-1D arrays on the Flight IIA destroyers, improving the destroyers radar sensitivity
