Raytheon’s new ground-up production Patriot successfully completed a system-level guided flight test at White Sands Missile Range, N.M.

The system’s success is a significant milestone for global air and missile defense.  It also highlights the capability of the combat-proven Patriot and the viability of the global Patriot supply base.

The modernized Patriot provides an affordable, low-risk and rapid path to meet the warfighter’s current and future air and missile defense requirements.

The test used new-production major end items against a long-standing performance scenario to verify system capability.  Raytheon and the U.S. Army chose a scenario that would be a rigorous test of all aspects of the Patriot system, and the system performed flawlessly.

Patriot is the world’s most capable air and missile defense system, protecting against a full range of advanced threats, including aircraft, tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial vehicles.
