RAYTHEON, NAVY CONDUCT SUCCESSFUL AEGIS-ER MISSLE TEST FLIGHT

RAYTHEON, NAVY CONDUCT SUCCESSFUL AEGIS-ER MISSLE TEST FLIGHT
 LEXINGTON, Mass., Apr. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and the U.S. Navy have conducted a successful flight test of an AEGIS Extended Range (ER) missile from an MK-41 vertical launching system at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico.
 The test, conducted April 9, featured a successful flight with a new booster engine and a modified upper stage rocket motor. The flight also successfully demonstrated the missile's long-range, high-altitude maneuverability.
 The AEGIS-ER, also known as the Standard Missile II Block IV, is a surface-to-air missile that will complement medium range Standard Missiles on AEGIS cruisers and destroyers equipped with MK-41 vertical launch capability. The Block IV missile is also a Navy candidate to provide the fleet with an Anti-Tactical Ballistic Missile defense because of its long range and high altitude capability. The technologies inserted into the SM-2 Block IV provide a considerable performance advantage over previous versions of the Standard Missile.
 Raytheon, headquartered in Lexington, Mass., is a technology-based, multi-industry, international company active in electronics, aviation, appliances, energy and environmental services. Raytheon sales totaled $9.3 billion in 1991.
