MBDA back with a bang

SP's MAI - - SP’S EXCLUSIVES -

Euro­pean mis­sile house MBDA has al­ways had a solid pres­ence at Aero In­dia, and this year it’s back with full force once again. The com­pany says, “At Aero In­dia 2013, MBDA will again demon­strate its unique sta­tus as the only com­pany with a prod­uct cat­a­logue ca­pa­ble of meet­ing the guided weapons re­quire­ments of all three armed ser­vices: air, land and sea. Promi­nently dis­played will be a model of the SR-SAM mis­sile which sees MBDA sup­port­ing the DRDO in ad­vanc­ing a so­lu­tion for the Maitri short-range air de­fence pro­gramme. Part­ner­ship will also be a strong theme as MBDA moves to deepen its long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with the In­dian de­fence sec­tor.”

The com­pany goes on to add, “With the In­dian Air Force look­ing to en­hance the op­er­a­tional ca­pa­bil­i­ties of its fleet of Jaguar and Mi­rage air­craft, com­bined with its re­cent se­lec­tion of the fu­ture MMRCA, Aero In­dia of­fers MBDA the ideal op­por­tu­nity to show­case its ex­ten­sive range of air-to-air and air-to-ground guided weapon sys­tems. To­day’s com­bat pi­lot has a more de­mand­ing job than ever now that the typ­i­cal mis­sion has be­come multi-role. MBDA can pro­vide the pi­lot with the nec­es­sary equip­ment to not only en­sure air supremacy but also to carry out pre­ci­sion strikes against a wide va­ri­ety of static and fast mov­ing sur­face tar­gets.”
