MBDA announced on 29 November that the CAMM-ER air defence missile it has been developing has successfully completed a series of trials over the past months. CAMM-ER – the extended range version of MBDA’s new-generation CAMM air defence missile family – demonstrated its ability to reach longer ranges and higher altitudes than the CAMM, while conducting a number of challenging manoeuvres.

All members of the CAMM family share the same active radar seeker and launch system, with CAMM-ER featuring a larger rocket motor to provide the extended range. The missile’s active radar seeker eliminates the need to use an illuminating radar. As they are kept in composite launch pods, the missiles require no maintenance during their lifetime. The launch system, which induces the first motion by sending the missile out of the pod under air pressure, provides ease of integration and reduces the total weight of the system. The missile system is compatible with many different sensor solutions.



CAMM and CAMM-ER missiles form the basis of EMADS, which is MBDA’s modular air defence solution. The CAMM missile family, developed to be fired from both land and naval platforms, is planned to be used by the British Army and the Royal Air Force, as well as by the Italian Army and Air Force. The Italian Navy is also evaluating how to integrate the missile family onto its future surface combat vessels.
