History of International Collaboration
MBDA was launched in 2001 as a joint venture by Europe’s leading missile companies in the United Kingdom, France and Italy to bring together fifty years of technological and operational success. Spain was included in the restructuring of Europe’s missile industry in February 2002, and the transformation was completed with the acquisition of German subsidiary EADS/LFK in March 2006. This further enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the missile industry.
