OBS

[The AIM-9G missile] closely resembled the -9D but employed SEAM (Sidewinder Expanded Acquisition Mode) electronics, while the [AIM-9H], a US Navy weapon, was basically a solid-state version of the -9G.

OBS

The AIM-9J introduced the Sidewinder Expanded Acquisition Mode (SEAM), which slaved the seeker head of the missile to the curcraft's radar when in "dayfight" mode, which enable the AIM-9J seeker head to be uncaged, slewed toward a specific target by the aircraft radar, and made to track only that particular target before being launched.
