Raytheon has conducted tests for a warhead designed to work with the DeepStrike long-range precision strike missile at the National Technical Systems' testing facility.

The team detonated the warhead within a controlled area and validated that it has met U.S. Army requirements, the company said Wednesday.

Designed for increased speed and greater range, the DeepStrike surface-to-surface missile is built to destroy fixed land targets from 37 to 310 miles. It also has a modular open framework for streamlined updates.

Raytheon is scheduled to deploy the missile for its initial flight test later in the year. In addition, the company intends to offer the missile to the U.S. Army as part of the service branch's Precision Strike Missile program, an initiative that aims to replace the Army's Tactical Missile System.
