Abstract:

The Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile AMRAAM AIM-120 program provides for the acquisition of the most advanced all-weather, all-environment medium range air-to-air missile system in response to United States Air Force, United States Navy, North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and other allied operational requirements through 2024. The system is an active radar guided intercept missile with inherent Electronic Protection capabilities for air-to-air applications against massed penetration aircraft and is designed to replace the AIM-7 Sparrow. The AIM- 120D, planned to be fielded in FY 2014, will have improved accuracy via Global Positioning System aided navigation, improved network compatibility, and enhanced aircrew survivability via a two-way datalink capability.
