Raytheon Company and Rafael Armament Development Authority have been selected to
develop a new terminal missile defense interceptor to defeat a variety of
low-cost, short-range ballistic missile threats. The source selection was made
by the Israel Missile Defense Organization (IMDO).
Raytheon's cooperation with Rafael ensures that Rafael's multi-mission
interceptor is designed from the start for seamless insertion into U.S. terminal
missile defense systems. Our approach provides the U.S. Army with a low-cost
extended air defense option for the future.
Our interceptor solution fundamentally redefines the performance-cost value
equation for terminal missile defense, providing all-weather, hit-to-kill
performance at a tactical missile price.
The Short Range Ballistic Missile Defense program is an IMDO initiative to
address the proliferating threat of short-range ballistic threats. Such missiles
and rockets are cheap, plentiful, easily concealed and largely exempt from
international arms control accords. These relatively insignificant battlefield
weapons can be transformed into deadly, strategic threats when fitted with
unconventional warheads and deployed in large quantities.
