MBDA Deutschland and Lockheed Martin announce new joint venture

MBDA Deutschland and Lockheed Martin recently announced a new joint venture to pursue the next generation Integrated Air and Missile Defence System, “TLVS,” for the German Bundeswehr. The joint venture is expected to become the prime contractor for the new system, which is currently being negotiated with Germany’s procurement office.
 
TLVS will leverage the development results and experiences from the US$4 billion investment of the trilateral MEADS programme (US, Germany and Italy) and deepen the US-European partnership through a continued, shared commitment to local industry, safety and security. TLVS is a modern system that will transform Germany’s defence capabilities and enable this key NATO framework nation to set an important precedent in how neighbouring nations address current and evolving threats for decades to come.
 
“With this joint venture, we will have the agility and ability to successfully make timely decisions in an integrated fashion. We will also have direct access to the most advanced test and simulation facilities and the pooled expertise and resources of MBDA and Lockheed Martin. That’s how we’ll bring this important defence programme to fruition for Germany and NATO,” said Thomas Gottschild, Managing Director of MBDA Germany.
 
Gregory Kee of Lockheed Martin and Dietmar Thelen, representing MBDA, will lead the company from the MBDA Deutschland office in Schrobenhausen, Germany.
