EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla., April 1 (UPI) -- Raytheon marked a delivery milestone for its Miniature Air Launched Decoy program supporting the U.S. Air Force.

U.S. defense company Raytheon announced it has delivered the necessary number of MALD units to the Air Force to support training and equipping requirements along with deployments in the field.

The successful delivery of the MALD units, an air-launched flight vehicle integrated with the B-52 bomber and F-16 fighter aircraft, marked a milestone for Raytheon and keeps the company on track for its delivery commitment.

"We know how important this system is to the U.S. Air Force and made early delivery a priority," Harry Schulte, Raytheon Missile Systems Air Warfare Systems vice president, said in a statement.

"With the help of our patriotic and dedicated employees, Air Force partners and invaluable suppliers, we pulled out all the stops and met our 2010 commitment."
