Rohde & Schwarz will deliver advanced naval communications and radar and communications electronic support measures (RCESM) systems for the Miecznik multi-role frigates.

These systems are designed to enhance the frigates' ability to detect and identify potential threats, ensuring the safety and security of the vessels. The RCESM system is already in service with another navy.

About the Miecznik class

Developed as part of Poland's naval modernization program, these vessels are designed to fulfill a range of missions, including anti-air warfare (AAW), anti-submarine warfare (ASW), and surface warfare (SuW), as well as supporting maritime security and humanitarian missions.

Each Miecznik class frigate is approximately 130 meters in length and displaces around 6,000 tons. The design emphasizes stealth features, reducing radar cross-section and enhancing survivability in contested environments. The propulsion system is based on a combined diesel and gas (CODAG) configuration, offering a balance between high-speed capability and fuel efficiency for extended operations.

Armament on the Miecznik class includes a variety of advanced weapons systems. For AAW, the frigates are equipped with vertical launch systems (VLS) capable of firing surface-to-air missiles (SAMs) to defend against aerial threats.

The ASW capabilities are supported by advanced sonar systems, torpedo tubes, and embarked helicopters equipped with dipping sonar and anti-submarine torpedoes. SuW capabilities are provided by anti-ship missiles (ASMs), a main naval gun, and smaller caliber guns for close-in defense.
