Army Concludes Qualification Test on Raytheon Missile Fuze

The U.S. Army has tested a fuze technology for an air defense system that Raytheon built to help warfighters counter threats such as adversarial unmanned aircraft systems.

Raytheon said Tuesday its Stinger missile with proximity fuze was able to hit multiple targets 100 percent of the time during the qualification test held at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida.

The device works to detonate a warhead close to its target.

The Army plans to integrate the fuze into Stinger missiles at an ammunition plant in McAlester, Okla., through a service life extension program.

According to Raytheon, the military branch will field the updated weapon system via an “urgent materiel release.”
