1 MBDA Italia vision of the National Air Defense through the Missile Systems’ Sustainability Plan Guido Lami - MBDA GROUP DIRECTOR ENGINEERING & SEEKERSAIR POWER: FROM MOST RECENT OPERATIONS TO FUTURE DEVELOPMENTSCASD, MARCH 20-21, 2014
2 MBDA Italy perception of the overall context It became “usual” to assign to financial themes the sovereignty and capability issues in the current debate, even in fields related to public interestsOur Minister of Defense declared to the Parliament last March 12: “In the last years, we European have became experts about spread, bond and other measures against financial crisis, decreasing our attention to security dimension….”Thus also Defense and Security matters are subject to such a financial crisis, that sometimes produces an impact toward “think national” also where international cooperation are well consolidated with structural cooperative programs, economic recession reinforces discrepancies pushing the system to support national interests
3 MBDA Italy perception of the overall context The European Defense scenario should arise from a precise analysis of geopolitical matters as well as operative capabilities expressed by Military ForcesNational participation to the development of a European Defense project is also dependant on industrial capabilitiesUnder this perspective and starting from current budget constraints, Italian MoD has to go beyond a simple cooperating declaration and show a concrete support to the debateA national rationalization of future operative requirements with resizing of products portfolio are necessary to achieve cost reduction, capabilities and sovereigntyTo adhere to a European Model without a national plan supported by relevant stakeholder could represent a major riskA new model already exists in FR and UK (Lancaster Treaties) and together with their better economic general condition could lead Italy and its industry at a secondary role
4 MBDA Italy VisionMBDA Italy, part of the integrated international MBDA Group since 2001, is experimenting this difficult condition:without Agreement between Governments on new programs equally supported by financial contribution,it’s not enough to be part of an integrated company to work maintaining technology at the state of the art and supporting IT MoD for future capabilities where sovereignty is considered necessaryA new “Partnership” model to approach Defense and Security is requested for both, Military Forces and the Defense Industry;In the next future the “Libro Bianco” results could be the answer to this need to define packages where a missile national company could contribute
5 MBDA Italy Vision : The Challenge ArmedForcesSGDSMDReduction in spendPurpose of Slide:To lay out in diagrammatic format the challenge the Complex Weapons sector faced at the start of the Team CW journeyKey Messages:The Challenge set through the DIS is to meet the UK Military’s capability requirements, within the available budget, whilst retaining sovereign capability.Industrial sustainment providesSovereign TLCMGreater flexibility to insert technology into weapon systems over timeAbility to tailor solution to UK requirements (rather than just buy what is on offer from MOTS)Understand exactly what the weapon does (open access and understanding)Help make the CW sector portfolio affordable.
6 MBDA Italy vision: experience on UK Government - Industry approach to Defense As part of a French-English-Italian integrated company, MBDA It is in the position to see directly some development related to the relationship between Defense Industry and Military Authorities;In UK, e.g. it has been adopted the:Defense Growth Partnership Government and Industry Working Together
7 MBDA Italy vision: Partnership Model Overall Principles Long term arrangement using an MoD IT / MBDA Italy partnering approach to deliver the new MBDA Italy portfolioRequirementsMoD Equipment Planning AssumptionsBalanced pipeline responding to the planning assumptionsFlexibility and agility to facilitate changing requirementsAssurance of Operational SovereigntyDelivery of measured efficiency benefitsDelivery of additional benefits through maturing of partnering arrangementKey EnablersCollaborative Relationship with TransparencyCommitment to Long Term bilateral relationshipExportability and International Collaboration
8 MBDA Italy Vision - Partnership Model 10 Key Principles Faster "Time to Theatre" - Capability not just EquipmentCommonality, Modularity and Technology Insertion - Through LifeCost Effective Platform IntegrationFlexible and Agile Project and Commercial ManagementBest use of Full Supply Network - Technology, Cost, RiskInnovation at all levels - Business and TechnicalCollaborative Behaviours and Mutual TrustOpen Communication and TransparencyBuilding Confidence through "Steps of Success"Strong and Joint Leadership with Team ApproachPurpose of SlideTo lay out the ten Key Principles which are guiding the delivery of Team CWKey MessagesIndividuals working within the organisations who form Team CW ought to recognise the above principles and how important their application is in supporting the delivery of the Team CW vision.
9 Evolution of capability - Air Defense Next charts show two examples of Italian missile (missiles, systems, platforms) asset/capability ( BMD e Shorad ) currently operative and their expected probable evolution in MBDA Italy view based on:Military Forces Operative requirements known today ;Standardization and reuse of products and solutions already in service and/or in the development phase, resolution of obsolescence;Launch of intergovernmental agreements at European level in order to share projects with the related development cost and the export returns;Budget/Balance constraints respect;Preserving technological and industrial capabilities to support national sovereignty.
