20th August 2018 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Moog has successfully completed the second phase of integration and testing on the Engineering Manufacturing Development configuration of the US Army's Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) .

The next system level qualification has been scheduled through summer and autumn 2018.

The MML is a next-generation air defence launcher built on open-system architecture, designed to defend against mortars, cruise missiles, UAS, artillery and rockets. The platform includes technology from Moog Defense Sector including the Longbow missile fin control actuation system, launcher azimuth and elevation control system, fire control software as well as an electromechanical slip ring, encoder assemblies, and fiber optic components.

Jim Riedel, group vice president, Moog Defense Sector, said: ‘It is Moog’s proven history of successfully supporting US Army initiatives with a wide range of high-quality, high-performance technologies that allows this depth of integration on the MML platform. With this latest success Moog is looking forward to system qualification quickly followed with low rate initial production on the MML programme.’

Moog is supporting the US Army’s MML platform under an agreement with Dynetics.
