Flexis – 2015
A new way to deliver and sustain capability
FLEXIS is MBDA’s 2015 Concept Vision proposing a fully modular missile system to revolutionise capability, sustainment and technology enhancement.
FLEXIS harnesses years of MBDA research and development in a system that redefines adaptability and evolution.
Through technologies such as contactless interfaces and common bus architectures, missile roles can quickly be modified to adapt to emerging scenarios. Standardised physical and functional architectures enable rapid upgrade of sub-system modules to maintain the technological edge.
Inter-missile communication and intelligent cooperation provides a system that maximises weapon efficiency and success in complex environments. An enhanced health management system ensures that all sub-system modules are maintained and available whenever they are needed.
