MBDA's CAMM-ER in new tests
MBDA has announced the completion of a new series of trials of the CAMM-ER air defence missile.
The company said that the trials validate the performance of the missile at extended ranges and high altitudes while conducting a number of challenging manoeuvres.
CAMM-ER is the extended range member of the CAMM air defence family of weapons. All members of the CAMM family share the same active radar seeker and soft-launch system, with CAMM-ER featuring a larger rocket motor to provide extended range out beyond 40km.
CAMM and CAMM-ER form the basis for MBDA’s Enhanced Modular Air Defence Solutions offering, a deployable point and area air defence system designed to protect mobile and static high value assets.
