Surrogate Missiles

BlueHalo is the lead developer of the Missile Airframe Simulation Testbed – MANPADS (MAST-M for the Combat Capabilities Development Command (DEVCOM). MAST-M is a surrogate missile system used for the test & evaluation of installed Aircraft Survivability Equipment.

BlueHalo’s Surrogate Missile Development

BlueHalo’s recoverable surrogate missile system, the Missile Airframe Simulation Testbed – MANPADS (MAST-M), is capable of engaging Aircraft Survivability Equipment (ASE) while guaranteeing collision avoidance and missile recovery to ensure a cost-effective, non-destructive test and evaluation (T&E) of the ASE
