Modular Missile Technologies is a demonstration of a product line approach to missile design based on a modular open systems architecture for guided missiles.
The objectives of the MMT project are: 1) develop a new architecture for the purpose of reducing life cycle costs for guided missiles; and 2) demonstrate technologies that support a guided munition product line that addresses several Army aviation lethality gaps for manned rotary wing and unmanned aerial system platforms. Care is being taken to make the design principals broadly applicable to other guided munition development efforts regardless of diameter.
Importance to the Army
The immediate impact of the MMT program on the U.S. Army is the availability of multiple technologies for small guided missiles to address several Army aviation capability gaps related to lethality. The MMT product line of missiles allows Army aviation to tailor mission loadouts for increased efficiency against broad targets. MMT incorporates advanced solutions to address the complex, multi-domain environment in which Army aviation operates.
