Abstract : An integrated sidemounting of a rolling airframe missile launcher with a 5'/54 MK-45 gun mount is provided. The integrated gun-missile system permits simultaneous tracking of the missile system and gun system and, through software systems, allows the ship's defensive system to automatically sequence through weapons as required. Chaff, decoys and flares may also be launched using the side-mounted missile launcher.
