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 MBDA’s Enhanced Modular Air Defence Solutions (EMADS) offering. The trials have been conducted in the past months and saw a series of successful firings of CAMM-ER that proved the performance of the missile at extended ranges and high altitudes while conducting a number of challenging manoeuvres,” MBDA said in a statement Friday.
EMADS is the export version of the Land Ceptor system for the British Army, which uses the MBDA common anti-air modular missile (CAMM). Italy is the lead customer for EMADS, which was selected in mid-2017 to replace its SPADA system that is based on the Aspide missile.
“CAMM-ER, meant to replace the existing Aspide munition, is expected to be integrated in the Air Defence system of the Italian Air Force and Italian Army. CAMM-based air defence systems are known as Land Ceptor and Sea Ceptor by the British Army and Royal Navy. The Italian Navy is also evaluating how to include the missile family with its future surface combatants,” MBDA said.
CAMM-ER is the extended range member of the new-generation CAMM air defence family of weapons. All members of the CAMM family share the same active radar seeker and soft-launch system, with CAMM-ER featuring a larger rocket motor to provide extended range out beyond 40 km.
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
European MBDA has been selected by South Korea to arm its new indigenous KF-X fighter jet with Meteor beyond visual range air-to-air missiles (BVRAAMs). The contract awarded by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) also includes providing integration support to KAI, transfer of know-how and manufacture of test equipment for the KF-X integration and trials campaign
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
