A superficial look at the 51st Salon la Bourget may give the impression that this year's Air Show is all about civil and commercial aviation. Take a closer look at the aisles and the static park, look under the wings or below some innocent looking planes, and you will realize that military aerospace is still 'in.'
The PAC-3 Missile Segment Enhancement (MSE) performed the first successful intercept test today fired from the Medium Extended Air Defense System (MEADS) MEADS lightweight launcher and employing the MEADS system battle manager. The test, first of three planned in the next 24 months, are part of the ongoing system development, currently funded through 2014.
