MBDA UK has signed an agreement with Poland’s PGZ-NAREW consortium regarding the schedule and terms of delivery of the NAREW air defense system components for the Polish Armed Forces.
The company will complete quick and efficient deliveries of its CAMM missiles and iLaunchers, which will be integrated with a radar station and the C2 communication and command system produced by the Polish defense industry.
“MBDA is proud to be part of such an important program for the protection of Polish skies together with our Polish partners from PGZ,” said Chris Allam, Managing Director of MBDA UK. “This rapid initial NAREW project demonstrates MBDA’s agility to respond to urgent needs, and develop sovereign system solutions in rapid timescales. We are already working to rapidly deliver the first systems to Poland as well as addressing the wider NAREW program of technology transfer and Polish manufacture.”
“[This] contract allows us to confirm the further schedule of integration work, the progress in which will determine how quickly we will be able to strengthen our country’s air defense,” said Sebastian Chwałek, President of the Management Board of PGZ S.A. “The signed document is also another step towards concluding a strategic agreement with our British partner in the production of launchers and missiles at our plants, that is crucial for the success of the entire NAREW program.”
The NAREW program provides for the development and delivery of components and subsystems for 23 short-range anti-aircraft missile systems. The program covers the supply of modern military equipment for the Polish Armed Forces, but also the acquisition of technology and knowledge, building industrial potential, project management and system integration by the Polish defense industry.
