Description: The Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) program is designed to provide the next generation of anti-air guided weapons for land, sea and airborne operations being fully compatible with existing command and control (C2) and sensors (radars etc) facilities. The new missile family is designed to engage high-speed jets, helicopters, supersonic cruise missiles and sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. These missiles will use low cost components and re-use software in order to achieve a significant reduction in customer costs. MBDA plans for the deployment of three variants for maritime CAMM(M), airborne CAMM(A) and land CAMM(L) applications between 2015 and 2020.

The Common Anti-Air Modular Missile (CAAMM) family is a shipborne surface-to-air missile (SAM) designed to meet the United Kingdom (UK) Royal Navy (RN) requirement for a Future Local Area Air Defence System (FLAADS) for the Type 23 and Type 26 frigates. Its primary mission will be to counter fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft as well as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and sea-skimming anti-ship missiles. The CAAMM will replace the Seawolf missile onboard Type 23 frigates by 2016. MBDA is the prime contractor for this program. CAAMM was still at the assessment phase as of March 2010. MBDA refers to this weapons system as the CAMM(M) as the maritime application of the CAMM missile family.

The Common Anti-air Modular Missile Maritime CAMM(M) is being designed to provide a 360-degree coverage against future airborne threats at ranges greater than 25 kilometers. It does not require the use of radar illuminator or radar tracking because it is fitted with a two-way data-link that connects to the ship's sensors and enables operation in both open ocean and the littoral environment. Besides, the data-link also allows for use against land targets. The CAMM(M) missile system is intended for corvette-sized or larger ships operating along with 2D and 3D search radars. With its fins folded, it will be fired from existing Sylver and Mk 41 launchers deployed with Allied nations. The missile uses soft launch techniques to reduce the system mass and easing installation.
