ABU DHABI (BNS): MBDA is presenting its comprehensive range of ground and naval based air defences at the IDEX which begins in Abu Dhabi on Sunday.

The 10th International Defence Exhibition and Conference (IDEX), organised by Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Company (ADNEC) will be held from 20 to 24 February.

The MBDA display extends from short range to the longer range and antiballistic missiles and the Aster 30 Block 1 missile which, on 18th October last year, registered the first successful ballistic intercept to have ever been achieved by a European missile.

MBDA is also showcasing a brand new addition to its range of Air Defence systems - IMCP (Improved Missile Control Post)- an integrated C2 solution for Mistral or VL MICA firing units, featuring a state of the art radar assembly.

In addition, PCP (Platoon Command Post) will be seen for the first time. This easily operated new system, working in conjunction with IMCP, optimises the dual layer command, control, coordination and information of short and medium range air defence units, an MBDA statement said.

MBDA’s maritime superiority on display will be CWSP or Combat Warfare System Package for either patrol boats or logistics vessels.

For patrol boats, CWSP features the integrated combination of an air and surveillance radar, Mistral missile equipped Simbad-RC air defence turrets with Marte Mk2/N anti-ship missile launchers as well as the vessel’s guns all remotely controlled and system managed from a console within the control room. For logistics vessels, CWSP focuses on the self defence elements.

MBDA will be launching yet another new defence solution at IDEX. The countermining system, Souvim 2, which is currently being delivered to the French Army in readiness for operational deployment in Afghanistan, will be shown in conjunction with the Buffalo vehicle as an enhanced capability known as Netted Route Clearance Capability.
