Mk-29 Sea Sparrow Missile Launcher …

U.S. Navy testing the RIM-162 Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) during combat systems ship qualification trials (CSSQT) aboard the aircraft carrier USS Gerald R. Ford. CSSQT is a Naval Sea Systems Command requirement to verify that ship personnel can operate and maintain their combat systems in a safe and effective manner. USS Gerald R. Ford is underway in the Atlantic Ocean conducting its final independent steaming event of post-delivery test and trials.

Addicional footage includes a RIM-7P missile fired from a Mk-29 Sea Sparrow missile launching system during a live-fire exercise aboard the Wasp-class amphibious assault ship USS Kearsarge (LHD 3). Kearsarge is underway for amphibious ready group training and deployment certifications.

The RIM-162 Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM) is a development of the RIM-7 Sea Sparrow missile used to protect ships from attacking missiles and aircraft. ESSM is designed to counter supersonic maneuvering anti-ship missiles.

The new missile is 10 inches (25 cm) in diameter instead of the previous 8 inches, which allows for a more powerful motor. It also eliminates the mid-mounted wings entirely, replacing them with long fins and moves guidance control to the rear fins that offers considerably higher maneuverability.
