Patriot successfully test fires PAC-3 MSE missile
Raytheon has announced that the Patriot Air and Missile Defense System has successfully test fired a PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) missile at White Sands Missile Range.
Patriot provides protection against a full range of advanced threats, including aircraft, tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles. The PAC-3 MSE is being developed by Lockheed Martin to provide performance enhancements and counter evolving threat advancements.
Sanjay Kapoor, vice president of Integrated Air and Missile Defense at Raytheon's Integrated Defense Systems business, said: ‘Patriot continues to successfully demonstrate its advanced capabilities of integrating new technologies. This is the seventh time Patriot has test fired Lockheed Martin's PAC-3 MSE missile, which will allow Patriot to take on the more sophisticated threats from rogue nations that threaten the safety and security of our warfighters and allies.’
Raytheon is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems and system integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.
