MBDA to Supply Marte ER and Exocet MM40 Block 3 Coastal Missile System to Qatar
 
MBDA signed on September 1st in Doha a contract for the supply of a coastal defence system for the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces (QENF). This innovative coastal missile system will deploy two different munitions, Marte ER (the Extended Range version of the Marte missile) and Exocet MM40 Block 3 , and it will be able to work in autonomous mode with its own radar, or alternatively by data-linking to a higher level within a wider coastal surveillance network. The supply of these coastal missile systems will allow the QENF to prevent hostile ships from reaching and threatening their territorial waters.

With this further contract signed by MBDA, the partnership between the three countries Qatar, Italy and France is confirmed and reinforced in a strategic environment such as defence.

Antoine Bouvier, CEO of MBDA, commented: “I am delighted that Qatar has confirmed the trust placed in MBDA for its defence requirements, just a few months after signing the MoU during DIMDEX exhibition. MBDA is now one of the country’s leading defence suppliers and will continue to show its long-standing commitment and support for the Qatari Armed Forces. Today’s contract follows the one signed with the Qatari Emiri Naval Forces last June to supply the new naval vessels recently procured from Fincantieri with MBDA missiles”.
