U.S. Navy conducts first live fire test with SeaRAM recently installed on USS Carney

The U.S. Navy conducted its first firing from the SeaRAM® anti-ship defense system produced by Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) installed on the USS Carney stationed in Rota, Spain.

The SeaRAM® detected, tracked and engaged an inbound BQM-74E target, intercepting it with a RAM Block II missile in a mid-July test. USS Carney is the second of four guided-missile destroyers stationed near the Mediterranean Sea to receive a SeaRAM system.

“These test results are evidence of our strong partnership with the U.S. Navy that is working to rapidly deliver solutions to protect our warfighters,” said Rick Nelson, vice president of Raytheon’s Naval Area and Mission Defense product line. “SeaRAM adds an important layer of defense to the Rota, Spain DDG’s and can provide protection to many naval ships facing today’s most worrisome threats.”
