090326-N-0000X-001Raytheon‘s Standard Missile-6 has completed a flight test held by the U.S. Navy, which sought to demonstrate how the surface-to-air missile works to detect and intercept a subsonic target at low altitude.

The Navy said Friday the so-called “Juliet” test was part of a series of follow-on test and evaluation events to assess the operational performance of SM-6.

Capt. Michael Ladner, a program manager at the Navy’s program executive office for integrated warfare systems, said the service expects all 10 FOT&E events to be complete by mid-2016.

Raytheon was awarded a $275 million contract modification last year for the all-up-round production of SM-6 and its spares.

The missile began initial operations for the service in late 2013.
