History

The history of what now is TDW began in the 1960s already at the site in Schrobenhausen where the company has been located ever since. The business started as part of Bölkow, later Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm (MBB) before it became DASA. TDW as an own legal entity was founded 1994 as a spin-off of DASA which continued to control the business as subsidiary. All missile activities of DASA and Dornier GmbH 1995 were consolidated into LFK-Lenkflugkörpersysteme GmbH which owned 100% of TDW. Together with LFK, TDW has been consolidated into EADS (now Airbus) which has sold LFK GmbH and its subsidiary TDW, to the European missile group MBDA in 2006. LFK GmbH has changed its company name to MBDA Deutschland GmbH in 2012. TDW was identified as one of few assets of "Critical Infrastructure and Key Resources" of the USA on foreign territory in a diplomatic cable leaked to WikiLeaks.
