Upgrading TOW (ES14E4)

19 June 2014

The TOW missile is in use with more than 40 armed forces around the world and is expected to be in US service beyond 2025. More than 675,000 have been delivered and are used by over 15,000 helicopters, vehicles and ground platforms. Raytheon (Hall 5, Stand A572) has joined forces with Thales (Outdoor A690) to update two new missile assemblies to address obsolescence issues, reduce cost and improve fuze safety. The initial agreement covers a 27-month development phase and a five-year production period.
