Not only did this test demonstrate the robustness of the BTERM guidance and control design, but it also provided valuable engineering data to support the next stage of the program -- guided, boosted flight-tests," said Tom Wilson, President, ATK Precision Systems Group.
Two additional BTERM test firings are planned to demonstrate remaining program objectives.
The BTERM is an extension of the Autonomous Naval Support Round (ANSR), a boosted projectile that flew a world record 54 nautical miles in a ballistic flight test conducted last year.
BTERM is designed to be compatible with the Navy's existing inventory of 5-inch/54-caliber gun mounts as well as the newer 62-caliber guns.
