The FIM-92 Stinger is an American man-portable air-defense system that operates as an infrared homing surface-to-air missile. It can be adapted to fire from a wide variety of ground vehicles, and from helicopters as the Air-to-Air Stinger.
The Stinger-Reprogrammable Microprocessor, or RMP, missile has a greater than 90% success rate in reliability and training tests.
The Army Is Now Firing Stinger Missiles From A Javelin Launcher. There was a demonstration of a Stinger short-range heat-seeking surface-to-air missile fired from a portable launcher originally designed for the Javelin anti-tank missile.
In tests, the combination of Javelin launcher and Stinger missile has been used to destroy an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) target, although, ultimately, the system will be able to take on a range of air and ground threats, providing improved engagement capabilities for the Stinger.
