The scope of the agreement is to formalize the intent of collaboration on products and programmes involving capabilities and solutions including, but not limited to the integration of the 2,75” Laser Guided Missile “CIRIT” and Laser Guided Long Rand Antitank Missile “UMTAS” on Mi series or on other types of helicopters platforms.

The MoU was signed by WZL 1 Chairman of the Board, General Director Mr. Jan Pietowski and Member of the Board, Commercial Director Mr. Zbigniew Sredzinski and Roketsan Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, Erguder Toptas.

Jan Pietowski said: “WZL 1 is an expert in the overhaul, maintenance and modernization of Mi- family helicopters. For many years we have been developing and implementing the projects of different systems integration on the aircraft operated by the Polish Army. The initiative with Roketsan to integrate their systems on various types of aircraft widens the portfolio of our activities and opens the door to be recognizable not only in Poland but also abroad. On the other hand our cooperation can be an incentive for future customers to be interested in our common work.

Roketsan is a leading company in defence for design, development and production of missile and rocket systems. As Roketsan we have provided combat proven technologies on the precision weapon systems such as Laser Guided Missile “CIRIT” for our worldwide customers. We believe the result of this initiative will enable us to expand and deliver our systems to friendly nations using Mi-series helicopters and also to further business cooperation between the two companies,” said Erguder Toptas.
