MEADS International signs risk reduction effort contract

12 July 2001

The NATO Medium Extended Air Defense System Management Agency (NAMEADSMA) has awarded a $216.35 million Risk Reduction Effort (RRE) contract to MEADS International.

Under the 32 month RRE programme, MEADS International will focus on risk reduction, application of key technologies that have been developed over the past years, and demonstration of the validity of the system design incorporating the PAC-3 missile. Critical technology areas will be assessed taking into account evolving national air defense concepts. In addition, the RRE programme will generate detailed specifications, statements of work, schedules, and cost to prepare for the decision by the nations for a follow-on Design and Development Phase.

MEADS International is a multinational joint venture of Alenia Marconi Systems (AMS) from Italy, European Aeronautic Defence and Space (EADS) and LFK - Lenkflugk'rpersysteme GmbH from Germany, and Lockheed Martin from the United States.

The MEADS programme was developed in response to the International Common Operational Requirements that called for a system capability not met by current systems. MEADS incorporates the proven hit-to-kill PAC-3 missile in a system that includes surveillance and fire control sensors, battle management/communication centres, and high firepower launchers. The system will combine battlefield protection with flexibility, allowing it to protect manoeuvre forces and to provide homeland defence against tactical ballistic missiles, cruise missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and aircraft.

The RRE programme is being financed by the US, Germany, and Italy in shares of 55%, 28%, and 17% percent. The companies in the individual countries participate in the programme with workshares that correspond to the funding shares.
