INTERCEPT PROCEDURES TEXTBOOK
D. Rocket Motor
The AIM-54 has a Mk-47 solid propellant, single stage motor with a burn time of 27 seconds.
The weight of the motor and its fuel account for approximately one-third of the total weight of
the missile.
AIM-120 INTRODUCTION
The Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) is the high priority
replacement for the aging AIM-7 Sparrow missile. Currently a joint program of both the Navy
and Air Force, the AMRAAM is designed to have higher performance and lethality, at a lower
cost, than the AIM-7.
Design
The AMRAAM is slightly smaller in size and weight in comparison with the AIM-7, with
many of the same features as the AIM-54. The AMRAAM has four major sections: guidance,
fuse, warhead, and rocket motor. Its appearance is similar to that of an AIM-7 Sparrow.
