Brazilian Navy Orders MBDA’s SEA CEPTOR

Ordered for Installation on TAMANDARÉ Frigates

MBDA is to supply the Brazilian Navy with its SEA CEPTOR air defence missile system for the service’s new TAMANDARÉ-class frigates, the company announced on 17 June.

SEA CEPTOR is a smart weapon control system (WCS) that, together with the fully-active Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM), provides comprehensive self-defence and local area air defence (LAAD). This will enable the TAMANDARÉ-class vessels to protect themselves, consorts and fixed infrastructure against the full range of threats at sea or in harbour, and in the most exacting operational scenarios.

The system is in operational service with the Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigates, and has been selected for the new Type 26 and Type 31 frigates. Brazil joins Chile, New Zealand and Canada in a growing list of international SEA CEPTOR users. The CAMM missile has also been delivered to the British Army in its ground-based air defence role.
