Description: The Future Local Area Air Defence System (FLAADS) family of ground- and ship-based surface-to-air missile systems is an initiative sponsored by the United Kingdom (UK) Ministry of Defense (MoD) in support of its armed forces. The FLAADS leverages technologies developed for the Sea Viper weapon system in service on the Royal Navy's Type 45 destroyers. The FLAADS Command and Control (C2) system features greater than 75% commonality of Sea Viper C2 software. The FLAADS family will also feature a common platform data link. The shipborne version should be operational by mid-2010s and the land-based variant by the end of the decade.

The Future Local Area Air Defence System - Land (FLAADS-L) or FLAADSLand is an advanced ground based air defense system intended as the replacement for the British Army's Rapier/Jernas short-range missile system by 2020. The FLAADS-L will utilize the Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (CAAMM) family to defeat a wide range of threats ranging from fixed-wing aircraft to supersonic anti-ship missiles. MBDA is the prime contractor for this program. The FLAADS-L is expected to leverage technologies including hardware and software from the FLAADS-M ship-based air defense system.
