MBDA has entered into a global strategic partnership with Safran Electronic and Defense as part of its bid to supply the Missile Moyen Portee (MMP) for the Australian Army’s LAND 400 Phase 2 programme.

MMP is a fifth generation multi-purpose guided missile system designed for dismounted applications as well as integration into armoured fighting vehicles.

MMP has been ordered by France for its infantry and Scorpion combat reconnaissance vehicle programme. It will be fitted onto the French army’s new Jaguar combat vehicles along with Safran Electronics and Defense’s PASEO advanced sighting systems.

Qualification of MMP was completed in July 2017, and deliveries have now started.

Safran is a strategic partner of MBDA for a number of programmes, including the MMP missile system where it is responsible for critical optronics elements including dismounted firing posts, sensors, commands, and missile seekers.
