    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    The AIM-7M/P Sparrow Missile is employed during air-to-air combat missions by NavyF-14, Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18, and Air Force F-15 and F-16 aircraft. The AIM-7 (series)is used primarily to neutralize the threat of high performance enemy aircraft. It is a supersonic,medium-range missile with Defensive Counter Countermeasure capabilities, which includesElectronic Protection from Electronic Attack. It guides on radio frequency energy, processingradar signals received via its rear signal receiver from the launch platforms radar system andreflected target energy received directly from the target. The AIM-7M/P is controlled in flight byfour movable delta platform wings. Missile stability is provided by four fixed delta fins which arelocated in-line with the forward wings. Missile propulsion is provided by a dual-thrust, solidpropellant rocket motor. An active radio frequency fuze detonates the warhead when the missileis within lethal range of the target. Requirements for a dual mode seeker AIM-7R were rescindedin FY96.

    The AIM-7M/P Sparrow Missile System consists of: (1) the radar guided missile; (2) thesupport equipment consisting of test and handling equipment, tools, reusable containers; and (3)the aircraft equipment required to launch the missile.

    The AIM-7M/P Sparrow Missile maintenance concept is based on an overall objective toassure All-Up-Rounds are available to fulfill the commitments of operational activities andprovide the means to restore unserviceable missiles to serviceable condition with minimaldowntime. Maintenance requirements are allocated to the organizational, intermediate, and depotlevels of maintenance as defined in the Naval Airborne Weapons Maintenance Program,OPNAVINST 8600.2 (series). Workload associated with AIM-7M/P Sparrow Missile does notincrease existing manning levels.

    The AIM-7M/P Sparrow Missile training concept is divided into organizational andintermediate levels based on OPNAVINST 8600.2 (series). Organizational and intermediate leveltraining courses have all been updated to include information on the AIM-7P. New trainingcourses were not required for the introduction of the AIM-7P.
