AEDC has tested the PATRIOT Advanced Capability-3 “hit-to-kill” missile in the center’s 16S to determine its lethality capacity. A rapidly deployable system, it provides short-range defense, defends deployed troops and provides continuous missile defense coverage for rapidly maneuvering forces. The PAC-3 system was deployed to the Middle East as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom where it successfully engaged several ballistic missiles. (U.S. Air force photo)
