PAC-3 MSE Missile Intercepts Target in Series' Final Test
 Jen Judson, Defense News 9:49 a.m. EDT July 9, 2016

WASHINGTON — A Patriot Advanced Capability Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) missile — the latest variant of the Lockheed Martin-made PAC-3 — successfully intercepted a target Friday at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, in its last test as part of a full series.
The final test of the Post Deployment Build Eight test program also marks the first time the US Army has fired the MSE interceptor, according to a Lockheed spokesman. The unit is based out of Fort Bliss, Texas.
The missile was tested against a full-scale, air-breathing target and demonstrated the weapon’s ability to "detect, track, engage and intercept an aircraft," according to a Lockheed statement.
“This test series has demonstrated the effectiveness of the PAC-3 MSE hit-to-kill interceptor against a wide range of targets, including air-breathing targets and ballistic missiles," said Scott Arnold, vice president of PAC-3 programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control. "We’re proud to deliver this overmatch capability to our war fighters."
The PAC-3 missile uses hit-to-kill technology and earlier variants are deployed in Patriot air and missile defense systems. The PAC-3 MSE will also be used in the Patriot system.
The MSE version has a larger, dual-pulse solid rocket motor and larger control fins, which “nearly double the missile’s reach and dramatically improve performance against evolving ballistic- and cruise-missile threats,” Lockheed said.
PAC-3 MSE had three successful tests late last year as well.

WHITE SANDS MISSILE RANGE, N.M., July 8, 2016 – A Lockheed Martin PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) missile successfully intercepted a full-scale air breathing target at White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico, today, as part of the Post Deployment Build eight (PDB-8) test program.
The launch demonstrated the interceptor’s ability to detect, track, engage and intercept an aircraft.
“This test series has demonstrated the effectiveness of the PAC-3 MSE hit-to-kill interceptor against a wide range of targets, including air-breathing targets and ballistic missiles. We’re proud to deliver this overmatch capability to our warfighters,” said Scott Arnold, vice president of PAC-3 programs at Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control.
The PAC-3 Missile is a high-velocity interceptor that uses hit-to-kill technology to defend against incoming threats including tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft.
Building on the battle-proven PAC-3 missile, the PAC-3 MSE brings a larger, dual-pulse solid rocket motor, larger control fins and upgraded support system. The enhancements nearly double the missile’s reach, and dramatically improve performance against evolving ballistic- and cruise-missile threats.
As a world leader in systems integration and development of air and missile defense systems and technologies, Lockheed Martin delivers high-quality missile defense solutions that protect citizens, critical assets and deployed forces from current and future threats. The company’s experience spans missile design and production, infrared seekers, command and control/battle management, and communications, precision pointing and tracking optics, radar and signal processing, as well as threat-representative targets for missile defense tests.
