An MBDA subsidiary has submitted its bid to Germany’s government in pursuit of a contract to developÂ that country’s futureÂ ground-based air defense system.
MBDA Deutschland GmbHÂ said ThursdayÂ TLVS will beÂ based on theÂ Medium Extended Air Defence SystemÂ and equipped with 360-degree coverage, open system architecture and a plug and flight functionÂ toÂ support civilians and warfighters duringÂ local and international missions.
“The offer presented to BAAINBw is the result of a detailed analysis and negotiation process with our partners and suppliers,” saidÂ Thomas Gottschild, managing director of MBDA Deutschland.
“It is based on the request for proposalsÂ we received at the end of February 2016 and forms the basis for negotiations with the German customer,” he added.
According to MBDA, Germany’s parliament will review a negotiated and finalized contract for the system by Spring 2017.
