    The video shows the NSM getting launched from a land base, flying over an island, and then acquiring and striking a ship. Check out the video.
    "Unlike most anti-ship missiles, the NSM uses an IR detector instead of radar, ensuring that it won't provide any detectable warning signals to its targets. GPS plus an in-flight data link let the missile make precise maneuvers and shift targets on the fly, and it also has "advanced terminal maneuvers," which means that it pulls some funky moves just before impact to keep from getting shot down at close range"
