Description: The RIM-7 SeaSparrow is a medium-range, semi-active, surface-to-air missile designed to counter high-performance aircraft and missiles. It is used for shipboard point defense on more than 150 ships. The SeaSparrow missile was deployed in 1956 and has been acquired by many navies of the world. The SeaSparrow missile has an annular blast fragmentation warhead in excess of 40 kilograms. It shares a common design with the AIM-7 Sparrow air-to-air missile.

The RIM-7M missile is more reliable than its predecessors against low-flying targets protected by ECM. The Sea Sparrow missile is sealed in the MK 48 GMVLS (Guided Missile Vertical Launching System). The MK 20 MOD 0/1 canister holds the MK 48 launching system in naval applications of the Sea Sparrow ship self-defense system.
