Description: The RIM-66/67 Standard missile were developed as the replacement for Terrier, Talos and Tartar surface-to-air missiles. It is an all-weather, supersonic, ship-launched, medium to long-range fleet air defense missile providing defense for an entire fleet area. There are 5 major types of Standard missiles: the SM-1, SM-2, SM-3, SM-4 and SM-6. The SM-1, SM-2 and SM-6 are air defense missiles, the SM-3 is intended exclusively against medium/long-range ballistic missiles and the SM-4 is a land attack missile. SM-4 development remains uncertain. The baseline Standard, the SM-1 model, was a semi-active radar guided missile while late models incorporate advanced signals processing, GPS, IR-guidance system as well as other refinements. The Standard missile is operational in frigates, destroyers and cruisers of 14 navies all over the world. The First Standard missile was deployed by US Navy's surface ships in 1970.

The Standard SM-2 Block IIIB features the same RF guidance system of the IIIA plus a side-mounted active Infrared seeker. This dual mode guidance system is suitable against aircraft and missiles heavily protected by the latest ECM. It also provides an enhanced capability to counter low-flying targets beyond the line of sight. The Block IIIB can be applied as an upgrade kit to existing Standard Block II/III missiles. On May 4, 2006, the US Navy awarded Raytheon a $142 million contract for the production of Standard Missiles-2 SM-2 comprising 75 Block IIIB missiles and 80 Block IIIB conversion kits.
