NAVY打算给SM2装主动头了?那SM6咋办?

USN plans active seeker refit for SM-2 missile

The US Navy (USN) plans to introduce an active radar seeker into the Standard Missile-2 (SM-2) family as part of upgrade and obsolescence mitigation programme intended to maintain the effectiveness of SM-2 into the 2030s.

This move comes alongside activity to re-start SM-2 all-up-round (AUR) production in fiscal year (FY) 2017 to meet international customer demand through Foreign Military Sales (FMS).

Although the USN ceased procurement of new SM-2 missiles after its FY 2011 buy, the service expects to maintain the weapon in inventory for at least another 20 years. Under the FY 2017 budget plan, initial funding has been earmarked for SM-2 improvement requirements definition and risk reduction work.

The SM-2 missile family currently uses semi-active radar homing, requiring illuminator support to illuminate the target in the terminal phase of an engagement. Speaking at the IQ Defence Naval Combat Systems Conference in London, US Navy Captain Michael Ladner, Major Program Manager, Surface Ship Weapons (IWS 3.0) in the Naval Sea Systems Command's Program Executive Office Integrated Warfare Systems (PEO IWS), confirmed that the SM-2 improvement programme "will put an active seeker in the front-end of SM-2".

Explaining the move, he continued, "As the threat and the density of raids continue to get higher and closer, there are inherent limitations on semi-active capability. So in 2017 we're going to start an obsolescence improvement programme on Standard Missile-2 that is going to do a whole bunch of things. But the big change is that we're going to put an active seeker in the front end.

"That active [seeker] capability will allow [SM-2] to pace the threat going forward.

不是已经有了标准6了么? 老标2还装个主动雷达头干嘛?这算把SM6往哪儿搁?

没有矛盾。要改装的是SM2BlockIIIA/B,性能不及SM6。SM6弹体是SM2BlockIV,数量不多,生产时间晚,并不在改装范围内。简式文章没交代清楚。

SM2BlockIIIA/B性能与SM2BlockIV相比, 究竟差在何处呢?
