Selex ES signed infrared seeker contract for MBDA's FASGW (H)/ANL anti-ship missile system
 
During the IDEX 2015 Exhibition taking place in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates) from 22-26 February, Finmeccanica – Selex ES announced the signing of a contract with MBDA France and SAGEM which will see the company participate in the development and production of a new infrared seeker for FASGW(H)/ANL, the next generation helicopter-launched anti-ship missile. FASGW(H)/ANL is being developed jointly by the UK and French governments for a range of future helicopter platforms.

The anti-ship missile will be called "Sea Venom" in the Royal Navy.
     
FASGW(H) /ANL is designed to provide precise effects against a range of threats in complex naval environments, so a highly-precise seeker is integral to the success of the missile. The system will also be integrated with a two-way data link so that the operator can monitor and alter if necessary the targeting of the missile while in-flight.

Work on the seeker is already underway – development started in late 2013 under pre-contract funding from MBDA and the first electronics hardware and a preliminary mathematical model have been delivered by Finmeccanica – Selex ES to SAGEM. The development phase will be followed immediately by a multi-year manufacturing phase.

Finmeccanica – Selex ES produces a range of high performance electro-optical seekers – currently in active service with a number of international missile systems – suitable for different types of guided weapon. These include infrared imaging (both cooled and uncooled), semi-active laser, dual and multimode seekers.
