2.0.1 RIM-7 Seasparrow Missile. The Seasparrow Missile is a short to medium
range all-weather, all-environment missile designed primarily for the ship self
defense role. Later variants of the Seasparrow Missile also contain a very
capable low altitude air and surface target capability. The Seasparrow Missile is
found aboard ships of the NATO Seasparrow Consortium and other allied nations
around the world. To support testing exercises, applicable Telemetry versions of
the RIM-7 are available. The Seasparrow Missile is being replaced by most
nations in the Consortium with the more capable Evolved Seasparrow Missile.
2.0.2 RIM-162 Evolved Seasparrow Missile (ESSM). The Evolved Seasparrow Missile
is a medium range all weather, all-environment missile designed to provide ship self
defense against air and surface targets. ESSM operates with a wide range of existing
and future Combat Systems. For compatibility with the existing Seasparrow
infrastructure, ESSM is required to operate with Continuous Wave (CW) Home All
the Way (HAW) systems. This includes the U.S. Navy MK 57 NATO Seasparrow
Surface Missile System (NSSMS), Dutch Clusters III and IV, the Danish STANFLEX
and the Australian ANZAC 9LV453 and FFG Australian Distributed Architecture
Combat System (ADACS) combat systems. ESSM is also compatible with the
AEGIS Combat System and APAR. A wide range of launchers including the MK 48
GMVLS, MK 41 VLS and MK 56 GMVLS are compatible with the ESSM.
2.1 Surface Missile Systems/Fire Control Systems. There are seven Consortium
products defined as Missile Systems or Fire Control Systems. These will be overviewed in
the subsequent paragraphs. In addition, there are other fire control systems known to be in
use with the Seasparrow/Evolved Seasparrow Missiles. Including, the CEROS Fire
Control System, MK 92 Mod 12 FCS, Anti Air Warfare Segment (AAWS), AEGIS and
APAR.
2.1.1 MK 57 NATO Seasparrow Surface Missile System (NSSMS). There are three
variants of the MK 57 in use today. All three variants are primarily used by
the USN in support of the Seasparrow or Evolved Seasparrow missile.
Each of these variants will be overviewed in the subsequent
paragraphs. Raytheon is the primary design agent of the MK 57
systems.
2.1.1.1 MK 57 NSSMS Variants Overview. All NSSMS MK 57
variants are all weather, all environment Anti-Ship Missile Defense
System. They are fully capable of unassisted target acquisition, track, missile/launcher
order preparation and missile firing when operated in the Automatic mode. The system is
capable of meeting the stringent late detect, or horizon detected time constraints for a
broad spectrum of current missile threats. The system also has a capable Surface Defense
capability. The designator and major differences between the various are:

MK 57 Mod 2/3 NSSMS. Legacy NSSMS variant that uses the Seasparrow
Missile.
2
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1

MK 57 Mod 10/11 NSSMS. Re-Architectured NSSMS variant that uses the
Seasparrow Missile variant.

MK 57 Mod 12/13 NSSMS. Re-Architectured NSSMS that uses the Evolved
Seasparrow Missile.
2.1.2 Dutch Configuration Fire Control System. The Dutch Configuration Fire
Control Systems consist of the WM25/STIR family of systems manufactured by THALES,
(formally known as SIGNAAL). Each of these Fire Control Systems will have one or more
of the following hardware configurations:

WM25 Combined Antenna System (CAS)

STIR (Magnetron)

STIR (TWT)
In addition to the above hardware configurations, the DC systems are also divided into
three different clusters (or ship groups). These clusters are differentiated depending on the
generation of the Signaal Miniature Rekeneaar (SMR) computer and its peripherals, as
well as the level of integration between the Fire Control System and the ship's Combat
Management System.
2.2 Launching Systems. There are four Launching systems proven to be compatible with
the Seasparrow or Evolved Seasparrow missiles. Of these, three are part of the
Consortium‘s product line. The fourth, MK 41 VLS, utilizes a Consortium developed
Launch canister to fire ESSMs. The following paragraphs will overview the compatible
launcher variants.
2.2.1 MK 29 Guided Missile Launching System (GMLS). There are 5 variants of the
MK 29 GMLS. This launcher family provides on-mount
stowage and launching capability for firing up to eight
missiles in a self contained environmentally controlled
trainable launcher design. The MK 29 Mod 1-3 supports the
Seasparrow missile variants. The MK 29 mod 4/5 supports
the Evolved Seasparrow Missile.
2.2.2 MK 48 Guided Missile Vertical Launching System (GMVLS). There are 5
variants 0f the MK 48 GMVLS. The MK 48 GMVLS is an unmanned system
capable of launching Vertical Launch (VL) Seasparrow missiles with the Jet
Vane Control (JVC) from its vertically mounted MK 20 canisters. Later Mods
can launch the Evolved Seasparrow missile. This vertical launching system is
designed to interface with a variety of Fire Control Systems (FCS). Raytheon
is the design agent for the MK 48 GMVLS. The MK 48 Mod 0-3 variants are
configurable with up to 16 Seasparrow missiles (6 missiles in the case of the
3
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1
modular Mod 3 configuration), available as a topside or in-deck installation. The MK 48
Mod 4/5 variants are configurable with up to 16 Evolved Seasparrow missiles, available as
a topside or in-deck installation.
2.2.3 MK 56 Mod 0 Guided Missile Vertical Launching System (GMVLS). The MK
56 Vertical Launcher is configurable with up to 16 Evolved Seasparrow
missiles depending on the Mod number, available as a topside or in-deck
installation. However, the MK 56 Mod 0 variant, part of NSPO support
program, is capable of launching 12 ESSM vertical launch missiles. The
launching system is remote-controlled and unmanned during launch
operation. The Mod 1 variant hosts 8 ESSMs.
2.2.4 MK 41 Vertical Launching System (VLS). The MK 41 is an in-deck VLS,
configurable in multiples of 8 cell modules. The MK 41 is used with both the Seasparrow
and RIM-162 missiles. When used with the Evolved Seasparrow, 4 missiles per cells can
be accommodated with the MK 25 Quad Pack Canister. Please note that the MK 41 is not
a Consortium Product. However, when used with the Seasparrow missile, the required
MK 220 Mod 1 MLC is.
2.3 Missile Canisters. There are three launch canisters that support the three vertical
launching systems as described below.
2.3.1 MK 20 Canister. The MK 20 is a single missile canister design with launch rail
used with the MK 48 GMVLS.
2.3.2 MK 25 Quad Pack. The MK 25 is a four missile canister design with
4 sub-cells used with the MK 41 VLS.
2.3.3 Composite Dual Pack. Composite design for single missile load out with launch
rail. This canister is referred to as “Dual Pack” because 2 ESSMs can fit into the same
space as a single MK 20 canister.
2.4 WCU-16A/B Jet Vane Controller (JVC). The JVC assembly contains four
hydraulically controlled vanes, a microprocessor and servo amplifier
assemblies. The JVC assembly is mounted to the exhaust end of the vertical
launch RIM-7 Sparrow missile MK 58 MOD 4 rocket motor with two
explosive bolts. The JVC receives and sends control signals from the missile guidance and
control section, and the shipboard missile launch control prior to launch to complete a bit
check and calculate the trajectory required for the missile to clear the ship. The JVC vane
motion causes thrust forces required to turn the missile body from a vertical orientation to
the desired flight trajectory during the initial seconds of flight. Following completion of
the initial missile pitch over, the JVC unit is jettisoned from the rocket motor by detonating
the two explosive mounting bolts.
2.5 CW Illuminators. There are five Continuous Wave (CW) Illuminators (Transmitters)
used with the Seasparrow and Evolved Seasparrow Missiles. Of these, two are considered
4
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1
Consortium products and are described in the subsequent paragraphs. The other three
transmitters are the MK 93 MOD 0 MACWIT in use by the Royal Danish Navy and the
Solid State Continuous Wave Illuminators (SSCWI) in use by the Australian and UAE
Navy’s.
2.5.1 MK 73 Mod 1 Transmitter. The Mod 1 Transmitter is a self–contained set of four
cabinets whose purpose is to generate X–band microwave energy. The transmitter uses a
master oscillator/power amplifier chain and the single sideband generator principle to
provide 2 kW of modulated RF power. A liquid cooling system is used for primary
cooling.
2.5.2 MK 73 Mod 3 Solid State Transmitter. The solid state
variant of the MK 73 Transmitter Group utilizes the same four
cabinets as the Mod 1 Transmitter. However, the majority of
the internal circuits have been replaced with modern
technology, including solid state RF amplification and
processors.
Power output and most other performance
parameters are the same as the Mod 1 Transmitter with
dramatically improved reliability and significantly reduced
maintenance cost.
2.6
MK 6 Mod 2 Low Light Level Television (LLLTV). The
LLLTV is designed to be used as an adjunct sensor during all NSSMS
operational conditions in support of visual threat recognition, fire
control tracking during casualty states, detection and evaluation of
multiple threats, and kill/survive assessment during missile
engagements.
2.7
Special Purpose Test Equipment. There is a variety of test equipment used to
support the Consortium prime equipment products. These are overviewed in Table 2.7.

3.0 Consortium Memorandums of Understanding & Required Approvals. The
NATO Seasparrow Project operates under the authority provided by four Memorandums of
Understanding (MOU):

Memorandum of Understanding for the International Development of the
NATO SEASPARROW Surface Missile System.

Memorandum of Understanding for the Cooperative Support of the NATO
SEASPARROW Surface Missile System.

Memorandum of Understanding for the Cooperative Production of the Evolved
SEASPARROW Missile.

Memorandum of Understanding for the Cooperative In-Service Support of the
Evolved SEASPARROW Missile.
These MOUs provide the framework for management and execution of the Project as well
as establishing the principles of cooperation that govern the Consortium’s operations. The
MOUs have been signed by the 12 member nations that comprise the NATO Seasparrow
Consortium:
Australia
Belgium
Canada
Denmark
Germany
Greece
The Netherlands
Norway
Portugal
Spain
Turkiye
United States
The aforementioned MOUs established the NATO Seasparrow Project Steering Committee
(NSPSC) which provides management direction and oversight for the Project and is
7
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1
comprised of one member from each of the 12 Consortium nations. The MOUs also call
for a NATO Seasparrow Project Office (NSPO) to serve as the executive staff and
execution agent for the NSPSC. With regard to sales of Consortium products to nonmember nations, there is a well-established process in place. Before Consortium
information can be released and before a sale of NATO Seasparrow products can take
place to a non-member nation(s), NSPSC approval is required. In order to obtain NSPSC
approval, the first step in the process is for a Government or military official from the
purchasing nation to submit a formal request for NSPSC approval. For your convenience,
the Consortium has prepared a form letter that can be used to obtain NSPSC approval (see
example of form letter provided in Appendix A. This letter is also available electronically
in the NATO Seasparrow Web Site, non-consortium Nations sub-site). Once a nation
submits a formal request, the NSPSC Members will be asked to pursue national staffing of
the request. Depending on the timing of the request, this process takes approximately three
months. After the NSPSC approves the release of Consortium information and approves
the sale of Consortium products, the purchasing nation is notified by NSPO. Please
understand that submitting a formal request for release of Consortium information or to
purchase a Consortium product(s) does not imply or constitute any obligation on the part
of the requesting nation. NSPO would be pleased to provide advice and assistance to your
Navy, at no charge, in processing a formal request to obtain NSPSC approval to purchase
Consortium products.
4.0 FMS Process Overview and Requirements. The U.S. Foreign Military Sales (FMS)
Program is one of the options available to non-Consortium nations for obtaining the
Consortium products and services described in this handbook. The U.S. FMS Program
uses formal contracts or agreements between the United States Government (USG) and an
authorized foreign purchaser. These contracts, called Letters of Offer and Acceptance
(LOAs), are signed by both the USG and the purchasing Government and provide for,
amongst other things, the procurement of follow-on support including engineering
services, logistics support, training, documentation, spare and repair parts, equipment
upgrades and related management services.
The Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process begins when an eligible foreign country or
international organization requests information for obtaining follow-on support of
Consortium products via U.S. FMS. These requests, generally referred to as Letters of
Request (LORs), can take the form of formal correspondence, requests for proposal
(RFPs), or via discussions, electronic mail (e-mail), letters, or messages. Although no
specific format is required for an LOR, the non-Consortium nation should ensure that the
request contains as much pertinent information on the desired Consortium Products and
Follow-On Support Services as possible in order to prepare an accurate cost estimate. The
LOR should indicate whether Price and Availability (P&A) data, a Letter of Offer and
Acceptance (LOA), a Letter of Intent (LOI), an LOA Amendment, or an LOA
Modification is desired. Certain USG organizations are authorized to receive and respond
to LORs. For NATO SEASPARROW Consortium products and services, LORs should be
sent to the following organization:

NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1

Department of the Navy
Navy International Programs Office
ATTN: 02C1
2521 South Clark Street, Suite 800
Arlington, VA 22202-3928

It would be very helpful if a copy of the LOR was also sent to NSPO at the following
address:

Project Manager, NATO SEASPARROW Project Office
ATTN: Code N-34
727 South 23rd Street
Arlington, VA 22202-3214
USA
5.0 Direct Commercial Sales Process Overview and Requirements. When it comes to
procuring follow-on support, the NATO SEASPARROW Consortium is not concerned
with the method of procurement that a nation uses (i.e., Foreign Military Sale (FMS) or
Direct Commercial Sale (DCS)). In fact, the Consortium does not have a preference for
either FMS or DCS. The Consortium’s major concern is that a nation obtains adequate
follow-on support because of its impact on mission assurance. Mission assurance is the
Consortium’s highest priority. Moreover, follow-on support is the single most important
factor in sustaining capability and meeting a nation’s expectations for equipment
performance. Mission assurance is a blend of:

Equipment readiness

Supporting systems readiness

Crew readiness

Logistics support readiness
To achieve mission assurance, the Consortium and the NATO SEASPARROW Project
Office (NSPO) have established an extensive follow-on support network comprised of
Government and commercial organizations. To show the Consortium’s commitment to
mission assurance, the Consortium is offering access to its follow-on support network to
nations who are not members of the NATO SEASPARROW Consortium. Access to the
Consortium’s proven, effective and cost beneficial follow-on support network is available
via FMS or DCS. In some cases, procuring follow-on support via DCS may be a faster
way of obtaining the technical and logistics support your Navy requires. If your Navy
decides to procure technical and logistics support via DCS, there are two options for
accessing the Consortium’s follow-on support network:
1) Utilize NSPO’s Follow-on Support Agent (FOSA)
9
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1
2) Obtain the support directly from the service provider
In both of the options above, your Navy would execute a commercial contract directly with
NSPO’s FOSA or the service provider. NSPO would be pleased to provide your Navy, at
no charge, advice and assistance on procuring follow-on support via DCS.
6.0 Ship Transfers Overview. Member nations of the NATO SEASPARROW
Consortium occasionally sell or transfer ships with NATO SEASPARROW equipment to
non-member nations. Although the sale/transfer of the ship(s) is a transaction between the
selling/transferring nation and the buying nation, Consortium policy requires the NATO
SEASPARROW Project Steering Committee (NSPSC) to approve the transfer of the
NATO SEASPARROW equipment on the ship(s). The NSPSC is responsible for
providing management direction and oversight and is comprised of one member from each
of the 12 Consortium nations (see section 3.0). The primary reason for obtaining NSPSC
approval to transfer the NATO SEASPARROW equipment is to give the Consortium
insight into where NATO SEASPARROW products are located in order to offer assistance
with follow-on support. The selling/transferring nation is responsible for notifying and
requesting NSPSC approval to sell/transfer the NATO SEASPARROW equipment. In
addition to NSPSC approval, please understand there may be other approvals required
before the transfer can occur (e.g., U.S. Department of State). An element that may be
considered as a part of ship transfer with Seasparrow Equipment is support via
sponsorship. Sponsorship is when a Consortium nation agrees to provide specific
assistance to the buying nation for a specific amount of time for some or all NATO
Seasparrow mission assurance elements identified in Section 5.0 of this handbook.
7.0 NSSMS Follow On Support Agent. The NATO Seasparrow Consortium does not
require follow on support as a condition of sale for any Consortium products or missiles.
However, the Consortium strongly encourages nations to utilize the existing in-service
infrastructure applicable to your NATO Seasparrow products in support of life cycle
maintenance. Due to the highly federated nature of the consortium product lines and
available in-service organizations, the NATO Seasparrow Project utilizes a commercial
Follow on Support Agent (FOSA). This FOSA is under the direct control of the NATO
Seasparrow Project Office. The FOSA can provide the primary interface for day-to-day
planning, coordination and execution of follow-on support requirements for your nation,
including the development of required documentation related to FMS Cases or Direct
Commercial Contract(s). In addition, the FOSA can assist you in determining or refining
your requirements for support equipment and systems as well as assisting in defining
recommendations for detailed and cost effective follow on support using the existing
Consortium service providers. Please note that the use of the FOSA will require an initial
“small value” contract or FMS Case.
Figure 7.0 overviews the specifics related to the use of the NATO Seasparrow FOSA. The
process starts with a nation contacting the NATO Seasparrow Project Office (NSPO). The
NSPO will have the FOSA assist you in determining related requirements and needs
associated with NATO Seasparrow equipment. These analyses will include matching
10
NSPO-CPH-0001
Rev -1
available NSSMS equipments and
services to meet your needs and
budget. Once we understand your
needs and the required funding is
in place, the FOSA will construct
and manage your support team
using the existing approved
service providers. The providers
are established and known experts
utilized by the NATO Seasparrow
Consortium for all aspects and
products associated with NATO
Seasparrow.
The constructed
team can support five areas as

technical documentation, equipment overall and installation to operation and maintenance
training.
To achieve mission assurance, the NATO Seasparrow Consortium has established an
extensive follow-on support service network that is comprised of Government and
commercial organizations. The Consortium encourages non-consortium nations to utilize
this follow-on support network. Use of this network has proven to be a cost effective way
to achieve and maintain operational readiness of your Seasparrow equipments.
Operational readiness is a blend of:

Equipment Readiness

Supporting Systems Readiness

Crew Readiness

Logistic Support Readiness
To achieve operational readiness, the Seasparrow Consortium has constructed a three

8.1 Seasparrow Missile Variants. The RIM-7 Missile is not managed by the NATO
Seasparrow Consortium. Instead it is a U.S. Navy product that is extensively utilized by
the NATO Seasparrow user nations.
8.1.1 RIM-7 Seasparrow Missile. All variants of the Seasparrow Missiles have a
complete array of supporting products and services available to user nations.
8.1.1.1 Seasparrow Training. A formal training program is required to provide
knowledge and skills required to support the Seasparrow missile and its support equipment
at the operational (O) and intermediate (I) levels of maintenance. All available courses can
be tailored to individual case requirements. These are the basic outlines for training
available for the RIM-7. The available Training courses are listed in Table 8.1.1.1.

Existing Department of Defense (DOD) technical publications approved for FMS release
will be provided wherever possible. These technical publications will be written in English
in the same style and format as USN/USAF technical publications. All technical
publications written to meet unique FMS requirements will carry an FMS prefix.
8.1.1.3 Seasparrow Integrated Logistics Maintenance Facility (ILMF). An Integrated
Logistics Maintenance Facility is required to perform maintenance, testing, and storage of
guided missiles and missile sections. Missiles have to be tested at periodic intervals to
ensure their reliability. This testing must be accomplished with the potential hazards in
mind. Blast-resistant structures, separation distances, and barricades combine to isolate the
damage resulting from fire and explosion. There are significant advantages for a country in
having their own ILMF. There is also a significant cost associated with having an ILMF.
Having ones own ILMF means that there are no delays in testing or maintenance for your
missiles. Countries with limited resources may wish to contract their missile testing and
maintenance requirements with other Sparrow missile countries that have an ILMF. In
doing so they do not need to build an ILMF, train personnel, or buy the associated support
equipment. They do have the logistic requirements for missile transportation and schedules
to contend with. Either way a country precedes an ILMF is required to test the RIM-7
missile.
8.1.2 RIM-162 Evolved Seasparrow Missile (ESSM).
8.1.2.1 ESSM Training. Table 8.1.2.1 identifies all available related Organizational
Level, Intermediate Level, Processing, and Test Equipment training courses. Request
forms for training can be obtained from the NSPO website or by contacting NSPO, Code
542. Training classes, such as the management courses and dockside handling, may be

8.2.2 Cluster I - III Dutch Configuration (DC) Fire Control System. The Dutch
Configuration Fire Control Systems (DCFCS) are managed very differently than the other
Consortium product lines. First, the Original Equipment Manufacturer
(OEM) for all these systems is Thales. Thales assigns a project number
to a nation’s configuration which represents a unique configuration item
within Thales’ configuration management database. In the original
procurement of a Dutch Configuration FCS from Thales, nations defined
its own unique requirements including documentation, sparing and
training. This means that in-service support requirements will be unique
for each nation. It also means that there is no single product or service
which is applicable to all user nations or even all projects within those
nations.
When a nation requests NSPO to manage an element of in-service support, a program is
developed and tailored to that nation’s specific needs and requirements at the time of the
request. This approach saves significantly on overhead costs for infrastructure and
resources that may never be used by a nation, and gives each nation the flexibility to define
a program that meets their own needs.
8.2.2.1 DCFCS Support Elements. For each of the established project numbers
(configurations) NSPO provides management support to Consortium PGs in the following
areas:

Technical Assistance/Support

Training. Thales-NL provides training for operators and maintainers, but can
also provide training courses for a comprehensive range of client personnel at
the appropriate levels. The courses can be conducted at Thales-NL's
International Training Centre or at the client’s site or onboard ship. It is
assumed that ‘Follow-On’ training of replacement crews and maintenance
personnel will be conducted using the resources of the user of the system.
Support for this continuation training as part of a Follow On Support package
can be arranged at any time under separate contract arrangements.
