Marshall to support MBDA missile systems
Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has received a £13.5 million contract from MBDA to manufacture Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (CAMM) canisters for the Sea Ceptor and Land Ceptor weapon systems, the company announced on 11 September.
Under the contract, Marshall will deliver canisters as a semi-installed unit to MBDA.
The contract includes further options for future CAMM requirements plus the potential for a CAMM Extended Range Canister currently in development.
Marshall also supports the Land Ceptor programme through its design, manufacture and integration of sub-systems equipment for the Land Ceptor Fire Unit Support Vehicle.
Alistair McPhee, CEO of Marshall ADG, said: ‘MBDA have placed trust in us to support them for over five years and to be part of the team delivering the most modern air defence system of its type in the world, is something we all feel very proud of; it affirms our ability to deliver and be a trusted supplier to MBDA and continue to support and protect armed forces around the world.’
