3/17/10 The Aegis weapons system is a surface-to-air integrated weapons system. It is designed to defend the fleet against any airborne threat . The heart of the Aegis system is the AN/SPY-1 Phased-array radar system coupled with the AN/UYK-1/7/43 high-speed computer system. This combination is able to detect incoming missiles or aircraft, sort them by assigning a threat value, assign on-board Standard surface-to-air missiles, and guide the missiles to their targets.
