MBDA Tests “Improved” MARTE ER Anti-Ship Missile
MBDA has concluded the second test of Marte ER anti-ship missile but featuring navigation system, proximity fly-over fuze, with weapon controller and actuation system in advanced configuration. “MBDAs Marte ER anti-ship missile has completed its second firing carried out at the PISQ (Poligono Interforze del Salto di Quirra) test range in Sardinia,” the company said in a statement Wednesday. Compared to the first firing, which took place at the end of 2018, several additional features and functionalities were tested. These included an integrated navigation system, proximity fly-over fuze, with weapon controller and actuation system in advanced configuration. The missile also featured the terminal guidance with a new seeker, engineered and developed by the MBDA Seeker Division. The floating target was hit with “almost zero” miss distance after a flight of about 100 km. The missile performed several major manoeuvres including very low sea skimming at very high speed.
