Caught at the moment of main motor ignition, an FGM-148B Javelin self-guided missile streaks towards its target last week during live-fire maneuvers at the Donnelley Training Area on the banks of the Delta River near Delta Junction. The Javelin operator views the target in a visible light and infrared viewer. Once the target is locked onto, the missile is fired and the Javelin guides itself to a strike with no further operator input.
