MBDA, a world leader in missiles and missile systems, is a multi-national group with over 9,750 employees in France, the United Kingdom, Italy and Germany and the United State. MBDA has three major aeronautical and defence shareholders - BAE Systems (37.5%), EADS (37.5%) and Finmeccanica (25%), and is the first truly integrated European defence company. MBDA works with over 90 armed forces worldwide. MBDA was created in December 2001, after the merger of the main missile producers in France, Italy and United Kingdom. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success. The restructuring of the industry in Europe was completed with the acquisition of the 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 industry.

EUROSAM was established in June 1989 by three major European aerospace companies (Aerospatiale, Alenia and Thomson-CSF) known today as MBDA Missile Systems and THALES.
EUROSAM is the industrial prime contractor and system design authority for the development, production, marketing and sales of a range of medium-range naval and ground-launched air-defence missiles also known as Famille de missiles Sol-Air Futurs (FSAF), or Future Surface-to-Air Family of missile systems.
These systems were developed under contract from the French and Italian Governments, who in the late 1980s had come to similar conclusions as to the operational requirements for their air-defence needs. These requirements called for naval and ground-launched missiles capable of defeating threats as diverse as high-speed tactical missiles (supersonic sea skimmers, air-launched, anti-radiation, cruise, TBM and other types) and highly-manoeuvering aircraft, in a saturation attack scenario. The key capability of these systems is their capability of simultaneously engaging multiple targets over 360 degrees.
