SMART-1s Support Combined Red Flag

Tonopah Test Range was the site of the first ever simultaneous launch of four SMART-1s in their roles as cruise missile surrogates. While the March, 05 exercise was plagued by unusual weather in the form of rain, snow and ice, the SMART-1s were credited with achieving 85% of their mission goals. The SMART-1s were assigned various ground targets including US Army Patriot sites which allowed our warfighters the opportunity to practice their skills in defending against CM threats.
