Today MBDA Deutschland and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) announced a new joint venture to pursue the next generation Integrated Air and Missile Defense System, "TLVS," for the German Bundeswehr. The joint venture is expected to become the prime contractor for the new system, which is currently being negotiated with Germany's procurement office for the Bundeswehr, BAAINBw.

Could we merge this discussion with the MEADS thread please since this is a partnership to offer a user specific variant of MEADS.

What's the difference between this and MEADS?  ???
"DARPA Hard"  It ain't what it use to be.

Not entirely sure but I think the TLVS lacks the MEADS surveillance radar and adds the IRIS-T.
