Airbus Military was a business unit of Airbus, which was part of EADS, during the period 2009–2013.

The company was formally created in April 2009 by the integration of the former Military Transport Aircraft Division (MTAD) and Airbus Military Sociedad Limitada (AMSL) into Airbus. In January 2014, the former EADS divisions Airbus Military, Astrium, and Cassidian were merged to form Airbus Defence and Space.[3]

The predecessor company was established in January 1999 as the Airbus Military Company SAS to manage the Airbus A400M project, taking over from the Euroflag consortium. In May 2003, the company was restructured as Airbus Military Sociedad Limitada (AMSL) prior to the execution of the production contract.

The Military Transport Aircraft Division (MTAD) was a division of EADS which designs, manufactures and commercialises EADS-CASA light and medium transport aircraft, and headquartered in Madrid, Spain.[4]

On 16 December 2008, EADS announced that MTAD and AMSL would be integrated into Airbus as part of Airbus Military.[5]

In February 2009, Domingo Ureňa-Raso was appointed chairman and CEO of Airbus Military.[2]

On July 31, 2013, EADS announced a change of name to Airbus Defence & Space.[6]

In late 2013, the parent company EADS effected the reorganization as the Airbus Group, with three divisions that include Airbus Defence & Space, Airbus, and Airbus Helicopters[7] ending the Airbus Military corporate entity.
