Description: The HUMRAAM is an air defense system combining five AIM-120 missiles and the Avenger's High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle (HMMWV) vehicle. This all-weather, low-cost, high reliability launcher provides high firepower, fire and forget, non line of sight engagement of tactical aircraft, UAVs and cruise missiles, that threaten forward deployed forces. The US Army and US Marine Corps are confident about the AMRAAM-based weapon systems.

The weapon system consists of the Raytheon IDS CLAWS launcher, the Thales-Raytheon MPQ-64 Sentinel radar system, the Raytheon Solipsys Multi-Source Correlator Tracker and Tactical Display Framework, and the AIM-120 AMRAAM missile as the interceptor. The system can also get target information from higher echelon sensors such as the TPS-59 radar and AN/TYQ-23 Tactical Air Operations Module. The whole system is based on the HMMWV platform.

The HUMRAAM is being developed for the US Army and meets the requirements of US Marine Corps CLAWS (Complementary Low-Altitude Weapon System) program. The Army/Marine joint program entered flight testing in August 2004 at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. As of October 2004, two flight tests were conducted with all mission objectives met. The CLAWS is the first system scheduled for fielding with the US Marine Corps expeditionary forces.

The Marine Corps CLAWS development testing concluded in January 2005 with the successful interception of a surrogate cruise missile target at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. The US Marine Corps will use the CLAWS to complement Avenger-based air defense systems against cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and other advanced threats.

As of September 2005, Raytheon had been awarded several orders totaling six CLAWS medium range weapon systems to be delivered to the US Marine Corps. In mid-February 2006 Raytheon received the go ahead to proceed with the manufacturing, assembly and test of the SLAMRAAM Integrated Fire Control Station (IFCS).

On May 26, 2006, Boeing delivered the first Integrated Fire Control Station (IFCS) for the US Army's Surface-Launched Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (SLAMRAAM) ground-to-air weapon system. IFCS provides battle management command, control, computers, communications and intelligence for the system in a HMMWV-mounted shelter.
