MBDA’S COASTAL MIS­SILE SYS­TEM FOR QATAR

SP's NavalForces - - NEWS -

MBDA has signed a con­tract for the sup­ply of a coastal de­fence sys­tem for the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces (QENF). This in­no­va­tive coastal mis­sile sys­tem will de­ploy two dif­fer­ent mu­ni­tions, Marte ER (the Ex­tended Range ver­sion of the Marte mis­sile) and Ex­o­cet MM40 Block 3, and will be able to work in au­ton­o­mous mode with its own radar, or al­ter­na­tively by data-link­ing to a higher level within a wider coastal sur­veil­lance net­work. The sup­ply of th­ese coastal mis­sile sys­tems will al­low the QENF to pre­vent hos­tile ships from reach­ing and threat­en­ing their ter­ri­to­rial waters.
