Lockheed Martin and MBDA have received a second request for proposal (RFP) to develop German military’s next generation integrated air and missile defence (IAMD) system, TLVS.

The RFP has been issued by the German Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support.

Lockheed Martin and MBDA are working together under a joint venture as anounced in March 2018.

With its netted-distributed capability and open plug and fight interface, TLVS will be an advanced, networked 360° IAMD system, with the ability to flexibly react to changing threats with responses customised to the mission.

Dietmar Thelen, managing director of the TLVS joint venture, said: ‘This second RFP is based on the first RFP. It addresses the results of our negotiations and aligns the TLVS offering with Germany’s new approach to acquisition reform, called Agenda Rüstung, focusing on military capabilities, transparency and risk management to ensure a successful contract.’
