MALI success

Northrop Grumman has successfully conducted a subsonic flight test of the Miniature Air Launched Interceptor (MALI) at the US Navy test range, China Lake, California. The subsonic flight was the first using a new computer system for off board guidance, as well as a built-in inertial measurement unit. MALI is a derivative of the US Air Force's ADM-160A Miniature Air Launched Decoy. The next test will incorporate a modified supersonic airframe and Sundstrand TJ50M engine.
