|Raytheon and Rafael unveil new multi-mission interceptor "Stunner" at MSPO 2014|
Showcased at MSPO 2014 and jointly developed by Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd. and Raytheon Missile Systems, Stunner is an advanced multi-mission interceptor designed for “plug and play” insertion into fielded air and missile defense systems. Stunner is effective against a variety of asymmetric short-range tactical ballistic missiles, inexpensive large caliber rockets, cruise missiles and unmanned aerial systems.

Integrating easily into a variety of engagement scenarios that employ established ground-based, sea-based and air-based sensors, Stunner’s compatibility with established canister and rail launchers offers maximum operational and deployment flexibility. Stunner’s concept of operation requires minimal cueing from sensor resources to ensure optimum rate of fire — even during saturation attacks. Stunner’s modern design inherently fits the future net-centric command and control architectures.
Stunner is an affordable, flexible and lethal hit-to-kill interceptor to defeat mass raids of threats. Stunner’s low price ensures that interceptors can be deployed in sufficient quantities to defend against rapidly increasing numbers of asymmetric threats.
Stunner has already undergone a number of successful tests and is currently under Full Scale Development.
