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.
