European missile consortium MBDA has indicated plans to build an interceptor missile system that will counter ballistic, cruise missile as well as latest generation fighter jets.
MBDA decided to move ahead with the program following the greenlighting of the TWISTER (Timely Warning and Interception with Space-based TheatER surveillance) project, by the Council of the European Union, last week.
“On November 12, 2019, the Council of the European Union gave the green light to the TWISTER capability project for implementation within the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO) framework,” the company said in a statement Wednesday.
The European multi-role interceptor is expected to be brought into service by 2030. According to MBDA, the new endo-atmospheric interceptor will address a wide range of threats including, manoeuvring ballistic missiles with intermediate ranges, hypersonic or high-supersonic cruise missiles, hypersonic gliders, and more conventional targets such as next-generation fighter aircraft. It will integrate existing and future land and naval systems.
European missile manufacturer, MBDA has signed an agreement with Bharat Dynamics Limited (BDL) of India for the final assembly, integration and test (FAIT) of Mistral and ASRAAM missiles in India. The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed on 12 September at DSEI in London, by George Kyriakides, Director of International Industrial Co-operation at MBDA, and Commodore Siddharth Mishra (Retd
MBDA is showing an insight into innovative weapons systems that complement the Tempest future combat platform including a ground attack micro-missile at the DSEI 2019 show in London. Working closely with Leonardo and BAE Systems (BAES) has led to MBDA developing concepts for a Hard Kill Defensive Aid System (HK-DAS) capable of tracking, targeting and intercepting incoming missiles in high threat environments
MBDA has unveiled Milrem Robotics THeMIS Unmanned Ground Vehicle equipped with six Brimstone precision strike missiles at DSEI-2019 exhibition in London, UK. “Pairing the Brimstone missile with a UGV such as the Milrem Robotics THeMIS provides the tactical commander with the precision anti-armour capabilities,” Andy Allen, MBDA UK Head of Land Domain Sales and Business Development said
The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is currently searching for a solution on Turkey's S-400 buy and is looking at how to combine the Russian air defense systems with American Patriots. "The Alliance is searching for a solution in connection with Turkey's purchase of Russian S-400 missile systems," NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, was quoted as saying by reports RIA Novosti
MBDA has successfully completed a series of trials of the CAMM-ER missile for enhanced modular air defense solutions (EMADS) system. “CAMM and CAMM-ER form the basis for MBDAs Enhanced Modular Air Defence Solutions (EMADS) offering
European MBDAs Common Anti-air Modular Missiles (CAMM) and Saabs Giraffe radar systems have been integrated into Northrop Grummans Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) Battle Command System (IBCS). CAMM was the first non-US missile system to be demonstrated with IBCS earlier this year, and Giraffe represents the first non-US sensor system to be demonstrated, Northrop said in a
Turkey will begin testing the radars of its new Russian-made S-400 air defense systems, against Lockheed F-16 jets over a period of two days. The fighters, along with other jets, will perform high and low altitude test flights on 25th and 26th of November for Turkey to test S-400 radars, Milliyet reported
Two MiG-31 fighter jets upgraded to the “BM” standard will be inducted into active services with the Russian forces by the end of the current year. The high-altitude fighter interceptors will enter service with the Central Military Districts fighter air regiment stationed in the Krasnoyarsk Region, Eastern Siberia, by the end of 2019, the Districts press office said in a statement Friday
