TSC developed the Target Detection Device (TDD) for Raytheon’s Accelerated Improved Intercept Initiative (AI3). The AI3 system was developed and successfully tested to take on the difficult Counter Rockets, Artillery, and Mortars (C-RAM) mission. This system is composed of the AI3 missile, a fire control radar, command and control node, and launcher.
During the live fire demonstration, the AI3 system destroyed 22 of 24 threats, including 107mm rocket targets at various quadrant elevations, as well as mortars, an unmanned aircraft system and improvised rocket-assisted mortars. The developed program was just over 18 months to meet a Department of Defense urgent need, and demonstrated that it also meets IFPC Block 2 requirements for C-RAM.
