TUCSON, Ariz. The U.S. Army and Raytheon completed a preliminary design review (PDR) for the DeepStrike surface-to-surface missile, moving the weapon toward its first flight tests planned for later this year.
The DeepStrike missile meets the Army's Precision Strike Missile (PrSM) requirement, and will replace the current missile that is approaching the end of its service life. During the PDR, the Army evaluated every aspect of the new missile's design, from its advanced propulsion system to its guidance system.
Previous program milestones include the integration of DeepStrike's new launch pod missile container into the Army's M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS launchers.
