MBDA Delivers the first PCP and IMCP Command and Control Systems

Issue 59 - March 2015

MBDA delivered the first PCP (Platoon Command Post) and IMCP (Improved Missile Control Post) air defence command and control (C2) systems destined for an export customer. Production of the remaining systems currently under order will be spread over the next two years. 

These PCP and IMCP systems will form the first air defence sections enabling the operation and coordination of Mistral and/or VL MICA systems. The PCP module is used for the command and control of multi-layered surface to air units. It provides the interface with systems or other sources responsible for coordinating the air space as well with other PCP modules deployed in neighbouring zones. Equipped with the latest 3D radar capable of detecting and identifying aerial targets at ranges of up to 80km, the IMCP module provides the detection, identification and target tracking functions for PCP.
