Description: The Sylver ship Vertical Launch System (VLS) has been designed to store and launch the latest generation of anti-air missiles such as ASTER 15 and ASTER 30. Despite Sylver primary customer is ASTER family of missiles, has been released that Sylver could eventually accommodate ANF supersonic anti-ship cruise missile, Standard and ESSM anti-air missiles, ASROC anti-submarine rocket, Tomahawk and SCALP Naval cruise missiles.

The Sylver VLS module features 8-cell which can be tailored to suit different types of missiles. Each Sylver module occupies an area of 6 square meters and is suitable for many types of ships ranging from corvettes to aircraft carriers. A single Sylver module yields up to 6 rounds per second. Sylver A-43 was developed for SAAM air defense system while Sylver A-50 version was developed for long-range PAAMS air defense system.

In 2005 the Sylver launcher was selected for the Franco-Italian Multi-Mission Frigates (FREMM) program which involves development and building of up to 27 warships. FREMM would require a further development of Sylver launcher to accommodate Scalp Naval land attack cruise missile which will add strike capability to Franco-Italian fleets. The Sylver A-70 launcher variant provided as standard equipment for FREMM frigates would support Scalp Naval and other existing missile systems.
