Raytheon Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) modernizes Polish medium range air defense system
Raytheon Company and WZU Sa are working together to modernize the 2K12 Kub Air Defense System. The two companies are displaying potential solutions at the MSPO show in Kielce, Poland, for the 2K12 Kub Air Defense System modernization.

The Evolved Sea Sparrow Missile (ESSM) is shown mounted on a 2P25 launch vehicle with new launcher canisters from Fokker and a semi-active radar upgrade solution on a mobile vehicle from Thales-Netherlands.

Raytheon is building upon on the successful ESSM technical demonstration conducted in May 2012 from a National Advanced Surface-to-Air-Missile System (NASAMS) launcher utilizing the HAWK XXI High- Power Illuminator (HPI) radar. The Raytheon/WZU team is currently working on a technical solution for the ESSM upgrade as a replacement effector for the 3M9 missiles in the 2K12 Kub Air Defense System.

"We are continuing our efforts to qualify ESSM as a ground-based air defense solution," said Rick Nelson, Raytheon Missile Systems' vice president of Naval Weapon Systems. "We look forward to our continued work with WZU to provide a modernized 2K12 Kub Air Defense System to Poland."

Designated "Pelican Missile Launcher" by WZU, the launcher is a missile-related component of the mobile short-range air defense missile set. The implementation of RIM-162 ESSM missile on the launcher has extended the scope of application from maritime to land environments. In effect, a possibility has occured to configure a set intended for destroying a wide range of threats, such as fast aircrafts, slow and manoeuvring air targets, at both high and low altitudes.

The carrying vehicle of the launcher is a transitory technolgical element, depending on the programme of the Armed Forces and Client needs. Main start-up and automation-related elements of the launcher, together with the driving systems, can be implemented on another carrying vehicle (e.g. KTO, Anders or another transport vehicle).
