I read, then re-read the article about the proposed Lockhead-Martin 'Millenium CIWS' gatling gun.

in the article it said it would be used as an 'inner defensive layer' weapon to shoot down (amongst others) 'Anti-Radiation' missiles.

'Anti-Radiation' Missiles?

What are they?

Where are they?

Who produces them?

More importantly, how do they work?

Anti-radiation missiles homes in onto radar emitted by enemies instead of using its own radar to track. That's basically it.

How exactly the CIWS can spot anti-radiation missiles, I do not know.

Cheers Taishyou. I remember now.

I'm getting old and my eyes are dimm and I cannot see!

Of course they do!

I was thinking about radiation, you know. Alpha, Beta, Gamma and X-Ray radiation and not radar radiating beams of electricity.

And that's after I submitted a post about HAARM and Mavericks.

What a pratt!

The same way it would track any other inbound target by radar of course.

fritz, ARM's have been around since Vietnam - they are a well understood and widely used weapon.

Rogue1 my dear chap, I was just stating that I am old - 53 this year in fact and I could not remember what the hell they were.

I know all about them - have called a few fire missions down some locations in my time.

The experience was 'most illuminating'.
