This Missile is a supersonic, light-weight, quick-reaction, fire-and-forget missile designed to destroy anti-ship missiles.  Its autonomous dual-mode passive RF-to-IR guidance design, requiring no shipboard support after missile launch, uniquely provides high-firepower capability for engaging multiple threats simultaneously. 

In commenting on the order, Jean-Pierre Maufras, API's General Manager of the Optosolutions Group, said, "We are honored to have been awarded this contract.  This missile program has been one of the Navy's most reliable missile guided systems and API is proud to continue to be a part of this successful endeavor.  We have been continuously working with the OEM to improve the products and its reliability and we are delighted to see our hard work rewarded by this vote of confidence. This is an ongoing program and we are confident we will see additional business in the near future as we are well positioned to support our customer efforts spanning to 2020."
