Raytheon's Patriot Air and Missile Defense System successfully test fired Lockheed Martin's PAC-3 MSE (Missile Segment Enhancement) missile recently at White Sands Missile Range, N.M.

"This demonstration of Lockheed Martin's MSE missile with the Patriot system builds on the family of combat-proven GEM and PAC-3 interceptors already available with Patriot and continues a rich history of integrating new technologies and capabilities," said Sanjay Kapoor, vice president for Patriot Programs at Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS).

Raytheon IDS is the prime contractor for both domestic and international Patriot Air and Missile Defense Systems and system integrator for Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles.
