MBDA submits TLVS proposal

3rd October 2016 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


MBDA has submitted its proposal for Germany’s TLVS programme to the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support, the company announced on 29 September.

The company received a Request for Proposal for Germany’s future ground-based air defence system programme in February 2016.

The offer that will form the basis for MBDA's negotiations with the customer is based on its MEADS technology. The system is designed to provide ‘unprecedented protection for both civilians and soldiers on operations either at home or abroad’. 

Special system features include 360-degree coverage, open system architecture and a ‘plug & fight’ capability that enables the attachment and detachment of additional sensors, effectors and weapon systems during uninterrupted operation.

According to MBDA, the air defence system can be operated at a ‘significantly lower cost to the user than existing systems’ and with fewer personnel. It will also give the German Air Force improved levels of interoperability with allied forces.

The current timeline will see German parliament review the negotiated and finalised contract in spring 2017.
