Raytheon and Emirates Advanced Research & Technology Holding (Earth), its UAE partner, see potential application of the Talon laser-guided rocket to take on small boats.That threat is considered particularly critical in this region, where Iran has invested heavily in such vessels. There is a fear that swarms of these boats could penetrate defenses simply by overwhelming them with numbers.
