Sea Breaker’s mission profile enables sea-skimming and terrain-following low-level flight above ground
Rafael Advanced Defense Systems unveiled its Sea Breaker, a 5th generation long range, autonomous, precision-guided missile system designed to hit maritime and land targets. Sea Breaker provides precision strikes from stand-off ranges of up to 300 km. It features an IIR seeker (Imaging Infra-Red). It can be launched from naval platforms, varying in size from fast attack missile boats to corvettes and frigates. The land battery architecture supports standalone launchers, or operation as an integrated solution, with a command and control Unit (CCU) and various sensors.
Using Artificial Intelligence, Sea Breaker performs deep-learning and big data-based scene-matching, enabling Automatic Target Acquisition (ATA) and Automatic Target Recognition (ATR). The system has full operational capability in GNSS-denied arenas, in all weather conditions. The missile is ECM immune and jam-resilient. Sea Breaker’s mission profile enables sea-skimming and terrain-following low-level flight above ground.
Flying at high subsonic speeds it is effective enough to neutralize a frigate-sized ship in a single hit. The missile’s datalink supports real-time man-in-the-loop decision-making and tactical updates. It also features a mid-flight abort capability and Battle Damage Assessment (BDA).
