Com­plex fir­ing of MBDA’s Aster 30


Af­ter the mis­sile test di­vi­sion of the DGA (French De­fence Pro­cure­ment Agency) car­ried out a com­plex test fir­ing of the Aster 30 air de­fence mis­sile on be­half of the French Navy at its Le­vant test cen­tre. The fir­ing sce­nario of the Aster 30 train­ing mis­sile launched from the Che­va­lier Paul air de­fence frigate in­volved an air tar­get pur­su­ing a friendly air­craft. The pur­pose of the test was to prove Aster 30’s abil­ity to dis­crim­i­nate and in­ter­cept when deal­ing with two in­ter­linked radar tracks.

This elab­o­rate sce­nario, cre­ated for the French Navy in co­op­er­a­tion with DGA Naval Tech­nol­ogy and DGA In­for­ma­tion Man­age­ment, and us­ing an in­stru­mented train­ing mis­sile, al­lowed tech­ni­cal data to be col­lected giv­ing pre­cise de­tails of the mis­sile’s fi­nal in­ter­cep­tion phase.
