More countries are considering buying Raytheon Co.’s mini-missile for special operators and infantry forces, a company official said.

Since Raytheon unveiled the Pike missile in 2015, the Waltham, Massachusetts-based company has received permission to market the precision-guided munition from one to several foreign governments, according to Lorenzo Cortes, a spokesman for Raytheon.

The weapon — which measures 17 inches long and 1.5 inches wide and weighs just 1.7 pounds — generated buzz at last year’s launch.
