RAM Block 2 Test Campaign Successful

Date: Issue 38 - January 2013

With two more successful test firings the German-U.S. Rolling Airframe Missile (RAM) program demonstrated the outstanding performance of the newly developed RAM Block 2 missile.

Two RAM Block 2 missiles were fired from San Nicolas Island test site against an approaching target drone with very low infrared and radar signature in an autonomously controlled mode. The target was intercepted by a direct hit and all test requirements were fulfilled. The test results demonstrate the successful completion of the RAM Block 2 development and clear the way for series procurement by the German Navy.
