During the last two weeks, Navantia Sistemas has hosted the first yearly meeting of the MTMD (Maritime Theatre Missile Defense), consisting of companies and navies of 11 of the most important western countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Holland, Spain, Great Britain, United States of America, Norway and Denmark.
The forum's aim is to provide maritime forces with defensive capabilities and interoperability practices to the participating countries against the threats posed by different types of missiles used simultaneously. The proliferation of a wide range of anti-ship cruise missiles and ballistic missiles poses a considerable threat to nations and their maritime forces. These missiles produced by and/or transferred to rogue nation-states, non-state entities, and terrorists, are a real threat to global security and commerce.
Throughout the meetings held at Navantia, several key points have been analysed in the anti-missile defence, such as: command and control and communication systems, modelling and simulation, planning and execution of real tests and the system integration standardisation.[Full Story.]
