The U.S. Army has begun to integrate promixity fuzes into Raytheon-built air defense systems for use in counter-drone missions.

Raytheon said Wednesday its updated Stinger missile technology will work to help soldiers destroy unmanned aircraft systems and other potential threats on the battlefield.

Stinger systems that were equipped with the fuze hit multiple targets during a qualification test conducted by the Army in October at Eglin Air Force Base. The military branch is due to field updated missiles later this year.

The system is designed to detonate a warhead near its target and support air-to-air engagements on the Apache helicopter.
