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 US Navy's Standard SM-6 Dual 1 is a modification of the SM-6 surface-to-air missile designed to engage both air breathing and ballistic missile targets from sea. The new missile can engage ballistic targets during their final seconds of flight integrated into the Aegis Weapon System. The SM-6 Dual 1 missile was first tested successfully against a short-range ballistic missile by the US Missile Defense Agency (MDA) at the Pacific Missile Firing Range, Hawaii, on August 3, 2015. The SM-6 Dual 1 was developed under MDA's Sea-Based Terminal (SBT) program and will achieve initial operational capability (IOC) in 2016.
