Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM)
The Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM®) has scored combat victories in the skies of Iraq, Bosnia and Kosovo. Its operational reliability is measured in thousands of hours.
AMRAAM packs unprecedented performance into a lightweight, cost-effective package. Because of the incorporation of the latest digital technology, micro-miniaturized solid-state electronics, and state-of-the-art active radar guidance, AMRAAM delivers the highest dependability at the lowest cost of ownership.
AMRAAM provides operational flexibility and multi-shot capability. It can be launched day or night, in all weather. Its autonomous guidance capability provides the pilot with a critical range-preserving launch-and-leave ability. This allows immediate maneuvering following missile launch, thus providing faster engagement of follow-on targets or the option to maximize separation from the original threat.
AMRAAM's operational capabilities include quick fly-out, robust immunity to countermeasures, and better capability attacking low-altitude targets. Its state-of-the-art active radar guidance, multi-shot capability, and dual use (air and surface launch) deliver high dependability at low cost of ownership.
To date, 36 countries have procured AMRAAM, enriching interoperability, ensuring commonality, and helping sustain strong overall logistic support.
