Icon The Cover: The Air Defense Systems Department uses sound systems engineering principles to enhance the operational capabilities of naval weapon systems such as Standard Missile. The cover depicts the general process used in upgrading a Standard Missile, from research and development to test and evaluation. Shown here is the at-sea Flight Test Round-1A Standard Missile-3 fired from the USS Lake Erie in January 2001.
(Cover designed by Gordon A. Boltz, Kenneth R. Moscati, and Candece D. Smith.)
