WASHINGTON — The Army has successfully completed its first open-air testing of an advanced multimode seeker, an upgrade to the Precision Strike Missile system.

During a 2-day test period from June 2 to 3 at Redstone Arsenal, AL, research teams operated the seeker at 50% capacity while tracking moving targets. The seeker was designed to allow an upgraded “Spiral One” missile to acquire targets on both land and sea.
