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 Missile SM-2 Block IIIC is a new variant featuring an active radar seeker and is expected to be deployed by the US Navy surface fleet by 2021. The SM-2 Block IIIC missile development is intended to fix the shortfall featured by all previous SM-2 missiles which relied on semi-active radar seekers to engage an intended target making the Aegis weapon system highly vulnerable to saturation attacks.
