MBDA announced it has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the supply of a coastal defence system for the Qatar Emiri Naval Force (QENF).

This Memorandum of Understanding will pave the way in the short term for a contract with the value of around EUR640 million. The supply of these coastal missile systems will allow the QENF to monitor maritime coastal traffic and prevent hostile ships from reaching and threatening their territorial waters.

These coastal missile systems can deploy two different munitions, Exocet MM40 Block 3 and Marte ER. The system can work in autonomous mode with its own radar, or alternatively by data-linking to a higher level within a wider coastal surveillance network.
