Case Study

2008 - Present - Loitering Munition (LM) Through Life Investment Options (TLIO)


Following the two year demonstration phase with System Development (UK), the MoD awarded future development of the loitering munition to MBDA.

Based on the previous work carried out for System Development, MBDA selected Blue Bear to work on platform-specific R&D for insertion into the LM throughout its anticipated service life.

Highlights so far have included:
  • Development of a 65% sub-scale demonstrator vehicle
  • Successful flight of the sub-scale demonstrator under autopilot control
  • Development and flight demonstration of a Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV) control station
  • Integration of an advanced sensor package with the sub-scale demonstrator
