MBDA. (News).

MBDA, BAE Systems and Rafael have bid together for the Australian Defence Force's Land 40 Phase 1 guided weapons programme, offering the Spike fire-and-forget / fire-observe-and-update missile system. The latter option means that while the missile is in flight the user can either steer it to an optimised aim point or divert it should the need arise. The Australian Land 40 phase 1 award is estimated to be worth AS 150 million. Poland has recently selected the Spike system under a $250 million, ten-year contract.
