Description: The Polyphem is an innovative optical fiber guided missile designed to fulfill multiple missions. It is a missile with a camera in the nose, connected to a guidance station by an optical fiber. The wire (optical fiber) means that the Polyphem missile can not be jammed and provides real time target area imaging (video observation) reducing collateral damage. This guidance system also provides accuracy of 1 meter and allows to perform maneuvers and retargeting remotely in real time via the wire.

The Polyphem-S is a derivative of the optical fiber guided Polyphem missile designed to be perform as an anti-ship missile. The Polyphem-S has been selected for the German class 130 corvettes. The Polyphem-S program was cancelled in early 2003.
