Results from the electro-optic sensors domain of the materials and components for missiles innovation and technology partnership (phase 1)
The Materials and Components for Missiles (MCM), Innovation and Technology Partnership (ITP) is a research programme supporting research for guided weapons at Technology Readiness Levels 1 to 4. The Anglo-French initiative is supported by the DGA and the MoD, with matched funding from industry. A major objective is to foster projects which partner UK and French universities, SMEs and larger companies. The first projects started in January 2008 and the first phase completed in spring 2013. Providing funding is secured, the next phase of the programme is due to start later in 2013. Selex ES leads Domain 3 of the MCM-ITP which develops Electro-Optic sensor technology. In collaboration with DGA, MoD and MBDA, the prime contractor, we identified 2 key objectives for the first ITP phase and focussed resources on achieving these. The objectives were to enable better imagery and low overall through life cost. Nine normal projects and one innovation fund project have been supported within the domain. The technology providers have included 3 SMEs and 7 research centres from both the United Kingdom and France. Highlights of the projects are included. An outline of the priorities for the domain for the new phase will be provided and we encourage organisations with suitable technology to contact us to get involved
