This test utilized a Family of Systems, comprising representative components of the following Navy Programs of Record: E-2D Advanced Hawkeye (PMA-231 & Northrop Grumman Integrated Systems, Bethpage, N.Y.), Cooperative Engagement Capability (PEO IWS 6 & Raytheon Network Centric Systems, St. Petersburg, Fla.), Aegis Weapon Control System (PEO IWS 1 & Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems and Sensors, Moorestown, N.J.) and STANDARD Missile 6 (PEO IWS 3& Raytheon Missile Systems, Tucson, Ariz.). All systems performed as expected for a successful demonstration of this future weapon system capability.

The Navy´s efforts in Integrated Fire Control (IFC) reached a milestone Friday, May 29, by achieving a successful live fire mission at White Sands Missile Range, N.M., utilizing an air directed surface to air missile (ADSAM) architecture. The Office of Naval Research (ONR) coordinated this event through a Future Naval Capabilities (FNC) project called Advance Area Defense Interceptor (AADI). The objective was to demonstrate the ability to execute an overland IFC capability against a cruise missile target.
