Revolutionary Approach To Time-critical Long Range Strike (RATTLRS) is an advanced technology demonstration program sponsored by the USN Office of Naval Research, with support from both the US Air Force and NASA.
The program develops missile configurations traceable to future Tactical Weapon Systems compatible with Joint needs for air (fighter & bomber), surface and subsurface launch platforms.
Lockheed Martin will design, build and fly Mach 3+ cruise missile demonstrators by 2007 using the Pacific Test Range DC-130 aircraft out of Pt Mugu NAS. The flights will exceed the threshold performance requirements using a revolutionary turbine engine developed by Allison Advanced Development Company. The flights will be accomplished without the use of an afterburner, doubling the current turbine engine state-of-the-art "supercruise" capability.
The design is compatible with future spirals that would allow the RATTLRS system to extend the speed capability to speeds of Mach 4+, with the integration of a ramburner.
