The MCM ITP (Materials and Components for Missiles, Innovation and Technology Partnership) is a UK MoD and DGA sponsored research fund open to all Anglo-French companies and Academic Institutions.

Domain 2: Radio Frequency (RF) Seekers

Domain lead: Thomas Merlet (Thales)

The RF Seekers Domain of the MCM ITP (Domain 2), primarily considers technologies and components which offer a benefit to the design and development of RF Seekers applicable to missile systems.  Essentially, the domain seeks research proposals which offer potential benefits in the four key areas:

  • Low cost of ownership, which at a seeker level can be seen as reducing cost for a given performance, or for a lower seeker performance which can be compensated for at system level.
  • Increase reliability for better operational availability, which equates to lower cost.
  • Better accuracy.
  • Development of techniques to improve target recognition/identification and offer Battle Damage Assessment or Indication (BDA or BDI) capability
