At the beginning of March, the Italian Navy performed weapons trials with the STRALES System firing DART projectiles against sea-skimming Banshee Aerial Targets.

An additional Banshee “observer” was configured with a camera system, and flown 100m above the target Banshee to capture the moment the guided DART projectiles hit the Banshee Targets.

A number of Banshee targets, equipped with Radar Altimeters, were destroyed by the STRALES weapon system.

A team of MDSL Field Services personnel supported the Italian Navy and the Italian Weapon Manufacturer – OTO Melara to conduct the trials.
