The system aims at benefiting from the maximum potential of each equipment. The RIM-162 Evolved SeaSparrow Missile (ESSM) is a development of the RIM-7 Sea Sparrow missile used to protect ships from attacking missiles and aircraft. WZU use it in a vertical position with datalink and a guidance mode selection. The ESSM ha range of 28km and has a hit ceiling of 11,000m for a mach 3 speed.

The RIM-162 is complementary with the Thales MTTIR (Multiple Target Tracking and Illumination Radar) and is recommended by Raytheon as a replacement for the older STIR 1.2 radar. Planned improvements such as anti-jamming and identification of non cooperating aircraft will add new capabilities to the radar and enhance its efficiency.

WZU put the MTTIR on a Polish Rosomak and to show its expertise on adapting technologies to its products. Especially designing a highly manoeuvrable and mobile system. RIM-162 missiles are twin-packed at the rear of a truck (Ford in the picture).
