SeaRAM Anti-Ship Missile Defense System

The SeaRAM® missile system defends ships against supersonic and subsonic threats including cruise missiles, drones and helicopters.

The innovative SeaRAM system combines key attributes of the Phalanx® close-in weapon system and the RAM™ guided weapon system. The SeaRAM system combines the superior accuracy, extended range and high maneuverability of the RAM missile with the high resolution search-and-track sensor and reliable, quick-response capability of the Phalanx Block 1B system. An 11-missile RAM system launcher assembly replaces the Phalanx system’s 20 mm gun.

An affordable capability upgrade, the SeaRAM above-deck system fits the exact footprint of the Phalanx system, uses the same power and requires minimal shipboard modification.

The U.S. Navy is in the process of arming four forward-deployed destroyers in Rota, Spain with SeaRAM systems, including: the USS Porter, USS Carney, USS Ross and USS Donald Cook. The installations are a rapid response to protect naval ships deployed in Europe. The SeaRAM system is also being integrated on the U.S. Navy’s littoral combat ships.
