MBDA completes CAMM-ER anti air missile test firing

MBDA has successfully completed a test firing of the extended range version of its common anti-air modular missile air defence missile against a manoeuvring target, confirming the capabilities of the  system.

The common anti-air modular missile – extended range CAMM-ER is the newest member of the CAMM air defence family of systems. The trial took place at an Italian firing range.

All members of the CAMM family share the same active radar seeker and soft-launch system, with CAMM-ER featuring a larger rocket motor designed by AVIO to provide an extended range of out beyond 40km (25 miles).

CAMM-ER was designed to replace the Aspide munition in the Medium Advanced Air Defence System (MAADS) of the Italian Air Force and the GRIFO air defence system of the Italian Army. The CAMM-ER missile  will be used in the Albatros NG system, which provides an optimized naval based air defence (NBAD) solution to enhance the defence capabilities of naval fleets.
