     The firing of two missiles on two different targets was realized at the DGA missile firing site in Biscarosse, France on May 20th 2014. For the first time, two SAMP/T anti-aircraft systems, one from the French Air Force and the other from Italian ground forces, participated in joint firing exercises.

     The targets were simulated by two drones. The SAMP/T system, firing Aster 30 missiles, intercepted the targets successfully. This exercise is a new demonstration of the operational capacities that belong to the SAMP/T system, notably its interoperability.

     The SAMP/T system, (Sol-Air Moyenne Portée/Terrestre), is baptised  Mamba in the French Air Force. It is capable of treating simultaneously any type of air target in a 360° defensive position. The prime contractor of the SAMP/T program is the GIE Eurosam (MBDA, Thales).
