MBDA Secures Potential $146M Navy Contract to Produce Surface Combatant Missile System

The U.S. subsidiary of MBDA will manufacture common anti-air modular missiles for maritime use under a potential $145.56 million contract from the U.S. Navy’s Naval Sea Systems Command.

Under the four-year contract, MBDA Inc. will produce CAMM systems for installation on multi-mission surface combatant vessels of domestic and international customers, including Saudi Arabia, the Department of Defense said Tuesday.

CAMM is equipped with a soft vertical launch capability to enable 360-degree coverage, can operate with targeting sensors and its design allows the weapon to fit in constricted spaces, according to the company.

The firm-fixed-price, cost-plus-fixed-fee award has a base price of $118.7 million, $65 million of which will be obligated through foreign military sales from Saudi Arabia.

MBDA is a global missile manufacturer owned Airbus, BAE Systems and Leonardo.
