NEXT GENERATION SHIP-BASED ALL WEATHER AIR DEFENSE WEAPON SYSTEM
COMMON ANTI-AIR MODULAR MISSILE
CAMM, the Common Anti-air Modular Missile, is the next generation air defense missile designed for land, sea and air environments. The maritime application of CAMM is known as Sea Ceptor.
Sea Ceptor will protect both the host ship and high-value units in the local area. The system has the capability to intercept and thereby neutralize the full range of current and future threats including combat aircraft and the new generation of supersonic anti-ship missiles. Capable of multiple channels of fire, the system will also counter saturation attacks.
Sea Ceptor incorporates advanced technologies to provide complete protection against all known and projected air targets. CAMM is currently in full-scale production for the United Kingdom to deliver the Sea Ceptor ship-based air defense system that will equip the Royal Navy Type 23 frigates and future Type 26.
The weapon system can be easily retrofitted into a wide range of platforms, ranging from 50m OPVs to frigates and destroyers. Two main features provide this flexibility;
- The use of “soft-launch” weapon technology for a highly scalable and compact launch system that can easily be installed in a number of locations.
- Sea Ceptor can be targeted from the ship’s existing surveillance radar sensors and does not require dedicated fire control radars.
Sea Ceptor is integrated to and will operate from British, French, and American vertical launch systems.
- High rate of fire against multiple simultaneous targets
- Soft vertical launch technology for minimum launch signature and high performance
- Compact missile allows for multiple weapons fit in limited spaces
- Compatible with any surveillance sensor for targeting
- Vertical launch enabling 360° coverage in all launch sectors
