The U.S. Army has completed the preliminary design review of a surface-to-surface missile system Raytheon is developing to help the service counter fixed land targets.

DeepStrike met the requirements of the Army's Precision Strike Missile program, which seeks to replace an existing missile technology that was designed in the 1970s, the company said Tuesday

"Completion of Raytheon's PrSM preliminary design review helps us accelerate development and fielding of this high priority Army program," said Col. Chris Mills, Army program manager for precision fires, rocket and missile systems.

"We are now ready to move to test and integration activities that will lead to a demonstration of PrSM's new capabilities."

The branch evaluated DeepStrike's propulsion system, lethality package and guidance technology.

Raytheon noted it plans to conduct the missile's first flight tests later this year. The company previously integrated the weapon's launch pod missile container into the Army's M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS launchers.
