Brimstone Extend its Service Life Beyond 2030 27 March, 2018

The United Kingdom has awarded MBDA a $565 million contract for the capability sustainment programme (CSP) of the advanced Brimstone air-to-surface missile, to extend its service life beyond 2030. Under the CSP effort, MBDA will manufacture new Brimstone missiles for the UK Armed Forces in order to replenish the country’s inventory.

The new-build Brimstone missiles will incorporate a number of key components offered by the spiral upgrades of Brimstone, including Dual Mode SAL/millimetric wave (mmW) seeker, enhanced autopilot, and the new insensitive munition compliant rocket motor and warhead.
