Meteor Beyond visual range air-to-air missile


In demanding situations, the ability to strike with pinpoint precision from beyond the horizon is a strategic asset.

Meteor is an active radar guided beyond-visual-range air-to-air missile (BVRAAM) superior to other missiles of its type, and capable of engaging air targets autonomously, day or night, in all weathers and in harsh electronic warfare environments.The missile’s ramjet propulsion system gives Meteor its high-speed performance and the energy to defeat fast, moving targets at long range.

The Meteor programme sees the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden joining together to provide access to technology and expertise across Europe. MBDA is the Prime Contractor.
