MBDA Deutschland is presenting a new 360-degree laser weapon at ILA 2016

MBDA Deutschland is presenting a new, flexibly deployable laser effector, which can be integrated onto both marine and land-based platforms via standardised interfaces at the international aerospace exhibition  ILA 2016 Berlin Air Show..

The new weapon system is especially suitable for defence against highly agile targets such as UAVs, rockets and mortar shells.

Thanks to its novel optics, it can acquire the target in a 360-degree operational arc, track and destroy it using its powerful laser beam. The solution stands out thanks to its high accuracy, scalable effect and low logistics overhead and minimum costs per firing.


MBDA is the only European group capable of designing and producing missiles and missile systems to meet the whole range of current and future needs of the three armed forces.
