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 IVA is the latest version to enter production and will provide area defense against theater ballistic missiles, while maintaining its capability against aircraft and cruise missiles. The Block IVA is powered by the Mk-104 rocket motor and the Mk-72 booster. The SM-2 Block IVA missile utilizes a side-mounted imaging infrared seeker to detect and track incoming theater ballistic missiles and guide to a lethal intercept. The Block IVA missile will be only available for AEGIS-equipped fighting ships.
