MBDA has presented a vision for optimising weapon effects in the future battlespace through its Weapon Effects Management System.

The European conglomerate is developing the Weapon Effects Management System for the UK’s Future Combat Air System (FCAS).

Chris Allam, Managing Director of MBDA UK and Executive Group Director of Engineering, said: “At MBDA, we know that networked weapons, cooperating in packs, or even swarms, will provide an operational advantage in the future battlespace. The Future Combat Air System will also have the information advantage in that same space. Coupling the two, the vision for the Weapon Effects Management System is to enable true effects optimisation, making complex weapons simple.”

Company officials said that MBDA weapon effects management capability aims to assist the pilot providing them with the optimal solution. An additional capability of the system is to exploit sensing and data-linking capabilities on an Effector to contribute to a mission system thus increasing situational awareness. Lorenzo Mariani, Managing Director of MBDA Italia and Executive Group Director of Sales and Business Development, said that to defeat increasingly challenging future threats…The FCAS programme is a further great opportunity to co-operate internationally and leverage each country’s advanced capabilities to offer the market new cutting-edge performances.
