UAE Navy buys Raytheon-made RAM Block 2s

Missiles will enhance protection of Emirates Baynunah-class corvettes

ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (Feb. 20, 2017):  The United Arab Emirates Navy awarded Raytheon a multi-million direct commercial sale for an undisclosed amount of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) Rolling Airframe Missiles (RAMs) Block 2, associated equipment, training and support. 

RAM is a best-in-class ship self-defense weapon. It’s a supersonic, lightweight, quick-reaction, fire-and-forget weapon designed to protect ships against anti-ship missiles, helicopters, aircraft and surface craft.

“The Emirates want to protect the investment they’ve made in their naval forces, and that’s what RAM missiles provide,” said Chris Davis, president of Raytheon International Inc. in the UAE. 

The missiles will be used to protect the Emirates’ Baynunah-class corvettes, which are used by the UAE Navy for surveillance, interception, coastal patrol, helicopter operations and other security missions.

According to Alan Davis, Raytheon’s Director of short-range defense systems, the RAM Block 2 is ideal for the UAE Navy because it “defends against complex threats that are maneuvering faster than other systems can defeat.”
