Sea Ceptor ensures the Royal Navy will be deploying with the latest air defence missile system, protecting the launch vessel and nearby deployed forces under its defensive cover from a wide range of challenging airborne threats.

CAMM’s active seeker technology, soft vertical launch and compact installation footprint give Sea Ceptor an excellent defensive capability for a worldwide variety of vessels against multiple threats. The system is a compelling proposition for overseas Customers who wish to upgrade from legacy semi-active missile systems as well as for future new build vessels.
     
Supacat is unveiling the Supacat Multi-purpose Vessel 24 (SMV24) to the defence and security market at DSEi. Launched to the wider marine and renewable energy sectors in July, the SMV24 is a new concept in support vessel design, which also has the potential to perform a range of defence and security related roles. Its flexibility, high speed and high payload have already attracted interest from potential operators in the sector.

Sea Ceptor is being delivered under the Portfolio Management Agreement between the MOD and MBDA to deliver the next generation of complex weapons. This ensures savings for the MOD due to Sea Ceptor’s lower cost of ownership and by operating a common stockpile of the CAMM for a future planned land system. Sea Ceptor will be installed in the Royal Navy’s Type 26 Global Combat Ship as they replace the Type 23s in the 2020s. With MOD expected to commit to manufacture of the T26 in the middle of this decade, cross-decking this capability will ensure that the T26 enters service with a proven air defence capability.
