Video: Multiple Kill Vehicle Completes Hover Test

Loading... Play Video

Editor's Note: In a December 2008 test (see video below), the Missile Defense Agency's Multiple Kill Vehicle successfully demonstrated hover capability while tracking and targeting a notional enemy projectile. The Lockheed Martin program (with support from Raytheon) uses industry-standard COTS boards in a familiar format that we're not able to reveal. Check out the video we've attached here, along with the Missile Defense Agency's informational PDF. It's all pretty amazing. –Chris A. Ciufo, Editor
