SM-6 Standard ERAM, is an upgraded version of the SM-2 under development designed to target both aircraft and high performance cruise missiles. The missile combines the proven SM-2 airframe with a seeker from an AIM-120 AMRAAMmissile utilizing the AMRAAM seeker to hit targets outside the ship's radar horizon, increasing range and accuracy. The missile takes advantage of the datalinking capabilities of the SM-2 and AMRAAM, and is expected to be relatively inexpensive to develop and procure.
