MBDA announces £250 million (US $391 million) Sea Ceptor missile deal at the DSEi 2013 show for the Royal Navy’s Type 23 and later Type 26 frigate fleet. 

The contract follows a £483 million development deal, signed in December 2011 with Britain, to get the missile into service in 2016.

The Sea Ceptor, the naval variant of the Common Anti-air Modular Missile, is the first of several contracts or selection announcements due this week at DSEi.

BAE Systems is likely to roll out several suppliers selected for the Royal Navy’s upcoming Type 26 frigate program. Rolls-Royce, with the MT30 gas turbine, is likely to top the list of suppliers announced on Wednesday.

An order for a fourth F-35B joint strike fighter to join three jets already delivered to the British for operational evaluation is possible by the end of the week.
