RaytheonÂ has demonstrated theÂ target updateÂ functionsÂ of itsÂ Griffin C missile when the system redirects to a new objectÂ during a flight test.
The company performed the three-for-three flight testsÂ at Yuma Proving Ground, Arizona for the U.S. Navy‘s Littoral Combat Ship surface-to-surface missile module,Â Raytheon said Tuesday.
“With its extended range motor, Griffin C’s increased capability addresses the need for a longer range missile with in-flight retargeting,” said Thomas Bussing, vice president of advanced missile systems at Raytheon’s missile systems segment.
“Because they often operate in a high-traffic, littoral waters, naval warfighters must make split-second decisions to engage or disengage targets,”Â Bussing added.
Raytheon also connectedÂ the new dual-mode seeker, data link and theÂ missile’s in-flight target update system.
