TUCSON, Ariz., Dec. 19, 2005 /PRNewswire/ -- A Raytheon Company Precision
Attack Air-to-Surface Missile (PAASM) was successfully launched Dec. 13 from a
rotary-winged, unmanned aerial vehicle (UH-1) at White Sands Missile Range,
The missile was fired from a standard M299 digital launcher and met
planned test objectives. Upon receiving the launch command, the PAASM missile
successfully ignited and separated from the M299 launcher and transitioned
into stable flight.
The demonstration validated the capability of the Raytheon team to
configure and integrate the missile system onto a standard, digital single
rail M299 launcher and satisfy standoff range and environmental requirements
for a helicopter/UAV extended-range, precision air-to-surface missile.
