MBDA's EPIC proposed for EC funding

As MBDA continues to ramp-up its production, the production ramp-up for ENFORCER missiles – ENFORCER Production Increase Campaign (EPIC) – has been proposed for funding within the European Commission’s ASAP programme.

The EPIC project aims to increase ENFORCER production significantly and thus will contribute to the further enlargement of the series production of ENFORCER missiles at MBDA in Schrobenhausen/Germany and at MBDA partner companies in Europe.

Eric Béranger, CEO of MBDA, declared: “The ASAP EPIC project is a great opportunity to ramp up the ENFORCER missile production, while making it more resilient and faster. Series production of the ENFORCER is now well under way and the first deliveries to the German Armed Forces will follow this year. Also an export contract has been concluded. We are increasing the production of ENFORCER missiles to meet customer demand for the years to come.”

MBDA is investing heavily in its production capacities all over Europe. ASAP EPIC makes a decisive contribution here and contributes significantly to European resilience and the sovereignty of our customers, their armed forces and their allies.

The portable, shoulder-launched, lightweight, high-precision ENFORCER is a fire-and-forget missile system with an operational range up to 2,000m. Due to its low weight, day and night passive operation and enclosed space firing capability, ENFORCER provides a significant capability enhancement in mobile ground operations.

With its unique features the ENFORCER provides precision effects capabilities against the threat from lightly armoured static and moving targets, targets behind cover and against targets at long range also in urban environments. The modular design of the ENFORCER system enables a range of future development options, including a ‘family’ of Enforcer munitions for land, air and sea applications.
