    TUCSON, Ariz. — The U.S. Navy completed a series of test shots using Raytheon Co.’s SeaRAM anti-ship missile defense system, taking out several targets in a variety of scenarios that mimic today’s most advanced threats to naval ships, the company said in a May 17 release.

    The series of two shots included one in which two supersonic missiles were inbound simultaneously, flying in complex, evasive maneuvers. In both flights, SeaRAM detected, tracked and engaged the threats, and fired Rolling Airframe Missile Block 2 guided missiles. which successfully intercepted the targets.

    Advanced protection systems like this coupled with the distributed lethality doctrine should keep our ships relatively safe in the Pacific theatre.We should be able to knockout anti ship missiles on China's new islands while staying safe from the ones that weren't destroyed. We also have the Phalanx and just started using lasers to take out incoming missiles.
