McDONNELL DOUGLAS (MDC) HAS TEST-flown in the UK its advanced target recognition (ATR) system - a key part of its Grand Slam bid for the Royal Air Force's conventional stand-off missile programme. Development of the ATR has been under way since 1987. The system, test-flown on a Beech King Air, is also being offered as part of MDC's US Joint-Air-to-Surface Strike Missile offering.
