Under the project supervision and funding of MBDA Germany, MBDA with the support of various government offices has been financing the a Kleinflugkörper (Small Missile) Technology Demonstration Programme. The current phase spans over one year and is funded by the MBDA. The missile concept was developed by building on the mission experience of the German Bundeswehr and more generally on the lessons learned from recent conflicts.
“We are pursuing this project drawing on multinational capabilities across MBDA. This multinational approach is particularly interesting in view of the shrinking budgets in Europe’s defence markets. MBDA is breaking new ground here with respect to the rapid, multinational implementation of innovative solutions for international customers” explains Peter Heilmeier, Market and Business Development Director at MBDA Germany.
