Great Britain opens up to the US missile market

(B2) According to an interview with Taylor Lawrence, president of the American missile systems company Raytheon and published on the DefenseNews Blog, devoted to Farnborough, Great Britain should reopen part of its public market in terms of missile technology to foreign companies. Since the Labor government of 2005, the national market was indeed reserved for local companies gathered within the Team Complex Weapons (such as MBDA or Thales UK).

“We heard that the new command of the Ministry of Defense is showing greater openness with regard to the technologies put on the table explains Mr. Lawrence. This is a major opportunity for the American company, which already sees the opportunity to sell to Great Britain its trimode seeker technology already used by the American army.
