EPS have been selected by MBDA to design, qualify and manufacture a storage and transportation container for the SPEAR3 4 Station Missile Launcher that will be used on the F35 Lightning platform. This will be the latest member of our family of aluminium containers for MBDA.
The container features specially designed expanded polyethylene foam cushioning to locate, restrain and protect the Launcher against shocks and vibration that will be encountered during transportation.
The container base will also be used as an integral part of the process used to load the Launcher into the F35 Weapon bay.
We are very excited to be involved in this new programme with MBDA and look forward to seeing it in service with the end user.
