Surface Launched Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile successfully intercepted a maneuvering unmanned aircraft system (UAS) during a flight test at White Sands Missile Range.

SLAMRAAM detected and tracked a maneuvering UAS target using a geographically dispersed network of three advanced Sentinel radars employing composite tracking to cue the weapon system. Operators fired an AIM-120C7 missile against the maneuvering UAS target at the system's maximum range. The engagement was executed from the centralized Integrated Fire Control System commanding a launch from a SLAMRAAM Humvee-based fire unit.

Operational testing of the system continues in support of SLAMRAAM low rate initial production planned for late 2009.
