INNOVATION, PROVIDING A COMBAT EDGE
MBDA is much more than simply a supplier to its global customers. It is a business partner that understands the need to constantly improve, to drive down costs, to ensure that its products are competitive and that lead times are in line with customer expectations and needs. This drive towards increased operational excellence is paramount as MBDA positions itself as the partner of choice and the major force behind sustaining the necessary level of defence technology independence in Europe.
With regard to technology, MBDA recognises that innovation is crucial. Therefore as well as internal initiatives such as the Innovation Challenge which encourages all within MBDA to take part in innovating for change, young engineers are encouraged to look towards future weapon capabilities with projects such as Concept Visions.
By advancing modular solutions and, when necessary, breaking new ground in technology advancement, MBDA people are actively preparing now for Europe’s missile programmes of tomorrow, programmes to meet the ever-changing needs of MBDA’s domestic and global customers.
