CMI Defence, partner of the US Army for the development of the future medium caliber system

Category: Defence Industry

At the beginning of 2016 CMI Defence was selected by, and in cooperation with, the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center (ARDEC) for a Research and Development program focused on Medium Caliber Armament Systems. This effort is being undertaken within the framework of a ‘Cooperative Research and Development Agreement’ (CRADA) that will be concluded at the end of 2017. It involves the common conception of a new medium calibre armament system incorporating an existing product of the CMI Defence portfolio.

At the end of 2015, CMI Defence was selected by ARDEC to be its partner within the framework of the development of an un-manned medium calibre turret. The project officially began at the beginning of 2016 with CMI Defence’s selection. Delivery of the turret to ARDEC is scheduled for mid-2017.

CMI Defence already possesses a remarkable lead in the medium calibre weapons systems domain. The new turret will integrate the 30 mm XM813 gun with a linkless ammunition handling system. It is planned that it will also receive a new precision fire control system with new user interfaces, allowing for a quicker, more accurate, and effective engagements of targets by its Users.

Jean-Luc Maurange, President of CMI Defence: “Being selected by the American army to develop its future medium calibre system is a first rate demonstration of recognition for CMI Defence. Participating in this development is of substantial importance to us. It enables us to be ideally positioned within the framework of the future American modernization program for the Stryker fleet of systems”.
