The two companies also re-confirm the will expressed in the Strategic Partnership Agreement for Missile Technology signed 2 February 2017 between PGZ-MBDA for co-operation on missile programs.
Based around the CAMM family of interceptors, the MBDA proposed co-operation contains a very high level of Polish content and will see an extensive transfer of technology and know-how with both the missile and launcher being progressively built in Poland. If selected the joint PGZ-MBDA solution offers the best solution for Polish industry and sovereignty.
Sebastian Chwałek, Deputy CEO of PGZ, said: “Implementation of the Narew program by PGZ is fundamental for our future and the security of Poland. This is why we are demonstrating that there are no limitations for us in foreign co-operation. By joining our competences in communication and command systems, which are key for air defense, with our foreign partners’ missile technologies, we are ready to deliver a final product to the contracting party in a short time.”
Jan Grabowski, MBDA’s Delegate in Poland, said: “This further deepening of the relationship between PGZ and MBDA is a great success for European defense cooperation. CAMM provides the Polish military and Polish industry with the best capabilities and technologies available on the world market, and the benefits of a true, European, partnership on missile technologies. Co-operation on CAMM is key to enabling deep co-operation on further missile programs.”
The CAMM family represent the latest generation of air defense technology. Utilizing a next-generation active radar seeker and soft-launch technologies, CAMM is able to rapidly defeat large numbers of the most challenging modern air threats and is suitable for both land and maritime applications.
