Fokker Missile Canisters for ESSM

Three-Year Agreement Covers 95 Mk30 Canisters

GKN Aerospace has concluded a contract with Raytheon Technologies for supply of Mk30 missile canisters for the Evolved SEA SPARROW missile (ESSM).

GKN Aerospace’s Fokker business is the sole-source manufacturer of the lightweight canister and leverages a long history of manufacturing high-quality composite missile canisters for Raytheon. The Mk30 missile canisters are manufactured in a unique process of filament winding, followed by vacuum infusion and can be used for up to 10 missile launches while surviving restrained firing. Refurbishment time between firings is very short, providing for excellent lifecycle costs.

This follow-on contract reinforces our partnership with Raytheon Technologies, and is a testament to our global workforce collaborating to provide the best technology to partners around the world,” commented Krisstie Kondrotis, President – Defense Business at GKN Aerospace.
