This year's Kielce MSPO is where Raytheon focuses on the three main areas of its cooperation with Poland: Poland’s future defence partnership, cooperation with Polish industry and partnership with the local communities.
The most significant solutions showcased by Raytheon at the expo:
Patriot™ - Poland and 15 other countries have entrusted the anti-aircraft and anti-missile defence mission to the combat-tested Patriot system. Not only Poland, but also Sweden and Romania have joined the Patriot fellowship last year. Now Switzerland is also considering the possibility to acquire the Patriot system. Recently, Raytheon has also announced the launch of work on its all-around omni-directional Patriot radar based on gallium nitride technology.
SkyCeptor™ - which is based on the Stunner, already in service. The SkyCeptor missile can eliminate 92% of ballistic missiles which pose a global threat. The missile can be possibly produced in Poland in up to 50%.
ELCAN Specter® DR - an optical sight used by the US special forces command and the British Ministry and NATO countries’ forces. It increases soldiers safety owing to the ability of dual view switching with the throw of a lever. - The two have been combined into a single sight unit.
