     The RAM was developed by the Navy and first tested at White Sands in 1974. Its current design has evolved from Dual Mode Redeye, Stinger and Sidewinder technology. It provides a lightweight and cost effective short-range point defense capability for smaller ships against airborne targets. Its launcher can accommodate 21 missiles. It has been installed on ships of the United States, Germany, Denmark, Egypt, Greece and South Korea.
