Tactical missiles can strike and intercept targets on land, in the air and at sea.
NATO needs to maintain a capability edge over potential adversaries with new and upgraded missile systems.
Concept definition is the first step towards a new missile system. Mission requirements will determine the size and performance of a system. Both are strongly related to the type and size of the propulsion sub-system.
Currently, to perform conceptual design, military users, procurement agencies and defense contractors in NATO nations use individual proprietary models and different data bases. This leads to non-consistent results and is hindering collaboration.
