It's designed to counter targets manoeuvring at up to 9g and travelling at Mach 4 - not many helicopters in that category! That said, I'm not sure that the tracking/ targetting system is ideal for naval operations. There is a naval variant (Seastreak) out there, but I haven't found much detail on it. A lightweight ground-to-air missile would be a useful addition to the Navy's armoury, both for smaller platforms and to counter the increasing use of drones
