In testing conducted at the US Naval Air Weapons Station in China Lake, California from December 2013 – January 2014, a Brimstone-equipped MQ 9-Reaper scored nine direct hits against stationary and maneuvering targets traveling at speeds as fast as 70 MPH from up to 7 miles away at altitudes as high as 20,000 feet – realistic “middle of the envelope” shot profiles. The testing also demonstrated how Brimstone’s dual mode Semi-Active Laser and Active MMW radar seekers work in tandem to ensure direct hits, even while manually designating and tracking targets beyond line of sight (SATCOM) conditions.
