Raytheon logo_EbizRaytheon has handed the initial batch of its Rolling Airframe Missile system to the U.S. Navy under the company's low rate production contract with the service branch.

The company worked to upgrade Block 2 variant's kinematics, radio frequency receiver and control system, Raytheon said Wednesday.

“Along with demonstrating a long-standing international partnership, the RAM program has a record of 91 consecutive months of contractual on-time deliveries, and continues its remarkable success rate of over 90 percent during flight tests,“ said Rick Nelson, vice president of Raytheon’s naval and area mission defense product line.

The RAM program is a partnership between the U.S. and Germany with support from Raytheon and RAMSYS.

The missile system provides defense against anti-ship cruise missiles, airborne threats and hostile surface attacks.
