Boeing Launches First Prototype Missile For GMDS
A Boeing-designed and -built booster vehicle was successfully launched today for its first verification test flight from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. The three-stage booster vehicle is the prototype interceptor for the Ground-based Midcourse Defense Segment (GMDS) Program (formerly National Missile Defense.)

The booster vehicle is a three-stage commercial-off-the-shelf missile integrating motors from Alliant Techsystems (first stage) and Pratt & Whitney Chemical Systems Division (second and third stages.) The objectives of this first flight test included verifying launch operations and procedures and completing a three-stage flyout and separation. Initial assessments indicate that all objectives were met.

The GMDS program involves the development, testing and potential deployment of a system to detect, track and destroy hostile intercontinental ballistic missiles before they can reach any of the 50 states.

"We are very pleased with the results of today's flight test," said Jim Evatt, executive vice president and general manager of the GMDS program. "The successful first launch of this prototype booster vehicle brings us one step closer to the final integrated system for the ground-based program."
