MBDA is pleased to announce the signing of a contract in Sweden for the supply of CAMM (Common Anti-Air Modular Missile) missiles to the Swedish Armed Forces.
The contract - signed between MBDA and the Swedish Defense Material Administration FMV (in Swedish: Försvarets materialilverk) - will see MBDA supply CAMM for the five corvette class Visby of the Royal Swedish Navy, which will integrate them into the naval air defense system Be Acceptor by MBDA.
Il Be Acceptor is a state-of-the-art naval air defense system, which provides robust local air defense and self-defense against simultaneous attacks, including saturation attacks, along the entire 360° threat axis. With a large capacity to counter different types of targets - from supersonic anti-ship missiles, to attack helicopters and unmanned aerial vehicles - the system is designed to face advanced threats.
Eric Beranger, CEO of MBDA, said: “CAMM will equip Sweden and the Royal Swedish Navy with a formidable air defense capability, which will enable the country the ability to make a strong new contribution to NATO, together with other allied states already operating the Sea Ceptor, such as the Royal British Navy. We are also proud to continue our long history of collaboration with Sweden and Swedish industry, as happens for example with Saab”.
MBDA has in fact a long-standing partnership with this country. An example above all is the Meteor missile program, led by MBDA, in which Sweden is a strategic and appreciated partner, while cooperation has also been started for the AKERON MP missile. SAAB itself is in partnership with MBDA for the TAURUS cruise missile.
Sweden joins a growing list of countries around the world that have chosen to rely on the CAMM family for state-of-the-art naval and land-based air defense, which includes the largest and most recent orders obtained from Poland, the United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Brazil and others.
