MBDA’s CAMM-ER achieves major milestone

CAMM-ER

MBDA has successfully completed a firing of the CAMM-ER air defence missile against a manoeuvring target, confirming the excellent capability of the CAMM family system, MBDA announced.

The trial took place at an Italian firing range. CAMM-ER is the extended range member of the new-generation CAMM air defence family of systems.
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 an extended range out beyond 40 km.

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. CAMM-ER is the missile that 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.

Recently, Brazilian Navy selected CAMM for its new Tamandaré-class frigates.

About CAMM-ER:

CAMM-ER, the Common Anti-air Modular Missile Extended Range, is from the CAMM family of next generation air defence missiles.

Incorporating advanced technologies, CAMM-ER provides complete protection against all known and projected air targets.

CAMM-ER has an active RF seeker that provides true all-weather performance with excellent clutter rejection capabilities. There is no need for dedicated complex and high-cost fire control/illumination radars.

CAMM-ER offers land-based forces a highly effective and easily deployable, medium-range air defence system, as part of the Enhanced Modular Air Defence Solutions (EMADS), capable of operating as either a standalone unit or integrated within a battlespace network. The use of third party target information from the wider battlespace network allows the system to engage targets that are non-line-of-sight from the local launcher or sensors.

CHARACTERISTICS:

-Weight: 160 kg
-Length: 4.2 m
-Diameter: 190 mm
-Range: > 45 km against multiple targets
-Speed: Supersonic
