The improved Raytheon Rolling Airframe Missile Block 1 is to begin operational tests, following the recent successful intercept of a supersonic Vandal target. The Vandal was launched against a decommissioned warship fitted with a remote-controlled Mk 1 ship self-defence system. The target was engaged by the Mk 31 RAM guided-missile weapon system, which homed on the Vandal's heat signature.
