Navy have been quietly working together to develop a new air-to-air missile called the AIM that will replace the venerable AIM Advanced Medium Range. ADVANCED MEDIUM RANGE AIR-TO-AIR MISSILE. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY. Introduction.

The Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) is a joint Air Force and Navy program with an estimated cost of about $ billion (then-year dollars) missiles. The missile has been in development and limited. The Army plans to begin the development of three major missiles beginning in FY a land-based hypersonic missile, a mobile medium-range missile, and a future interceptor for medium-range.

Raytheon unveils the development of the new Peregrine advanced air-to-air missile. smaller Peregrine missile is faster and more maneuverable than legacy medium-range, air-to-air missiles. It does have some visual similarities to concept art Raytheon has previously released of its Peregine, a small air-to-air missile derived from the AIM Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile.

Raytheon is proposing its new Peregrine missile as a complement to the AIM and AIM-9X in the air-to-air role. The missile would be half the size and weight of the previous missiles, but with more range, increasing the number of shots for each fighter that carries it.

The company is funding development for now. Raytheon courtesy image. The Raytheon AIM Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile was developed as a result of an agreement in the ’s between the US and some of the NATO nations to develop air-to-air missiles and share production technology.

In September, defense contractor Raytheon unveiled the Peregrine, a missile derived from the company's AIM Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile. The AIM advanced medium-range air-to-air missile (AMRAAM) is a new generation air-to-air missile.

It has an all-weather, beyond. An air-to-air missile (AAM) is a missile fired from an aircraft for the purpose of destroying another aircraft. AAMs are typically powered by one or more rocket motors, usually solid fueled but sometimes liquid fueled.

Ramjet engines, as used on the Meteor (missile) are emerging as propulsion that will enable future medium-range missiles to maintain higher average speed across their engagement. The Raytheon AIM Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) is an all-weather, all environment radar guided missile developed to improve capabilities against very low altitude and high-altitude, high-speed targets in an electronic countermeasures environment.

The R medium-range air-to-air missile is the Russian equivalent of the radar-guided U.S. AIM AMRAAM (Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile. Canada's wish to buy the latest version of the Advanced Medium Range Air-To-Air Missile (AMRAAM), the AIMD, has been granted by the US State Department.

An even more closely-held air-to-air missile program is the Long Range Engagement Weapon, being developed by Raytheon. That munition is expected to be a two-stage missile. Lockheed has previously promoted an air-to-air missile it called the “Cuda,” which would notionally be half the length of the AMRAAM but with similar or longer range.

For its part, Japan can offer advanced seeker technology, perhaps providing an electronically-scanned missile seeker like that fitted to the Mitsubishi Electric AAM-4B air-to-air missile. The 33rd Fighter Wing loaded and shot the first air-to-air missiles from an operational FA during a weapons system evaluation at Tyndall Air Force Base, Jan.
