Description: The RIM-116 RAM (Rolling Airframe missile) is a supersonic, lightweight, quick-reaction, all-weather, low-cost missile designed to engage high maneuverable anti-ship missiles. To achieve the low-cost objective the RAM missiles uses Stinger's infrared seeker and the warhead, rocket motor, and fuze from the Sidewinder missile. The radiofrequency and Infrared guidance package of the RAM missiles makes them a fire-and-forget missile.

There are two models of the RIM-116 missile, the Block 0 and the Block 1. The Block 0 missile has only passive RF/IR guidance. The Block 1 (1999) has two guidance modes, RF/IR mode and IR-all-the-way guidance mode. Raytheon is upgrading the RAM missile in order to engage helicopters, aircraft and surface targets. This upgrade, known as HAS upgrade, will be applied thru RAM missile's software enhancements.

The navies of the United States of America, Greece, the Republic of Korea and Germany utilize the RAM missile. The United States Navy plans to purchase up to 1,000 RAM Block 1 missiles. The RIM-116 missile is stored inside a canister that works as the launch tube, both the missile and the canister are known as Mk-44 Guided Missile Round Pack.

Raytheon was awarded a $45 million contract March 22, 2005, for production of 70 launching canisters, 65 RAM Mk 44 Mod 3 all up round tactical guided missile round packs, and associated equipment in support of the United States government.
