MBDA and Safran partner for Australian army acquisition programme

MBDA and Safran Electronics & Defense signed a global strategic partnership which is aimed at playing a key role in response to the Commonwealth of Australia's Defence Industry Policy Statement.
MMP is the only 5th generation multi-purpose guided missile system currently ordered by a major NATO member. MMP was developed by MBDA for dismounted applications and for integration onto armoured fighting vehicles.

MMP has been ordered by France for its infantry and combat reconnaissance vehicles (Scorpion program). It will be fitted onto the French army's new Jaguar combat vehicles along with Safran Electronics & Defense's PASEO advanced sighting systems. Qualification of MMP was completed in July 2017, and deliveries have now started. PASEO sighting system has additionally been ordered by France and integrated on to the Scorpion program's Jaguar combat reconnaissance vehicles.

Safran Electronics & Defense is a strategic partner of MBDA for a number of programs, including the MMP missile system where they are responsible for critical optronics elements namely: dismounted firing posts, sensors, commands, and missile seekers.
