|MBDA awarded first contract for its new Albatros NG system
Albatros NG is a new CAMM-ER based air defence system for naval applications
MBDA has been awarded a first contract for Albatros NG, a brand new CAMM-ER based air defence system. This first order, from an undisclosed international customer, marks a further validation of the wide appeal of the CAMM air defence family on the global marketplace and paves the way to further acquisitions by the same customer and other Navies.
Albatros NG is a new generation Naval Based Air Defence (NBAD) system, based on the CAMM-ER, which is the extended-range variant of the Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) family already delivered to customers around the world for both ground-based and naval air defence.
Under the terms of this recent order, Albatros NG will be in service in 2024.
The CAMM-ER missile is capable of providing self and local area defence against the evolving airborne threat at ranges exceeding 40km; it will be integrated in the new ground-based air defence systems for the Italian Army and Italian Air Force. CAMM family systems have already been delivered to the British Army, to the Royal Navy and to several export nations.
