 I believe that this was the Sea Sparrow Anti-Aircraft System. 

I did not work on these systems an I am sometimes mistaken. If you can tell me anything about this system please send me e-mail at the bottom of this page

It's funny because these missiles were the only defense our ship had. At that time there were no anti-aircraft guns, no cannons, and no phalynx system.  If these missiles didn't work, we were sitting ducks

A Letter from Mike, one of our readers

You might be correct in saying that the missile system was our only ship defense. But with a screen of destroyers, frigates, subs, fighter screen, the E-2 Hawkeye, as well as the Aegis guided missile cruiser  that was part of the task force, we were very well protected.
