DoD OKs Sale of Raytheon SM-6 Missile Tech to International Customers

The Defense Department has authorized the sale of Raytheon‘s Standard Missile-6  offering to international customers that seek to adopt the platform to support their shipbuilding programs.

Raytheon said Tuesday SM-6 is designed to protect naval ships against ballistic and cruise missiles, fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft and unmanned aerial vehicles.

Mike Campisi, SM-6 senior program director at Raytheon, said international navies seek the level of protection capacity the company’s multimission missile technology offers.

The company developed the system to support fleet air defense, anti-surface warfare and sea-based terminal defense operations of the U.S. Navy with the use of signal processing and guidance control technologies.

Raytheon rolled out the first full-rate production SM-6 in April 2015 from the company’s manufacturing hub at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama.
