MBDA Air Defense Missile Achieves Major Milestone

The Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) extended range-based (CAMM-ER) air defense missile is designed to provide defense against evolving airborne threats at ranges over 40 km By DA Reporter / 05 Jul 2021

MBDA has achieved a major milestone with the successful firing of the Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) extended range-based (CAMM-ER) air defense missile.

The event took place at an Italian firing range in which the CAMM-ER hit a moving target, confirming the capability of the extended range member of the new-generation CAMM air defense family.

All members of the CAMM family share the same cutting-edge active radar seeker and soft-launch system, with CAMM-ER featuring a larger rocket motor designed by AVIO to provide defense against airborne threats at ranges over 40 km.

CAMM-ER was designed to replace the Italian Air Force’s Aspide munition in the Medium Advanced Air Defense System (MAADS) and the Italian Army’s GRIFO air defense system.

CAMM-ER will be used in the Albatros NG system, which provides an optimized naval based air defense solution to enhance the defense capabilities of naval fleets.
