MBDA and PGZ have unveiled an air defence system featuring the former’s CAMM iLauncher integrated onto a Jelcz 8x8 truck chassis.

Building on a so-called Strategic Partnership Agreement for Missile Technology signed on 2 February 2017 between the two for co-operation on missile programmes, MBDA is proposing a high level of Polish content if selected by the ministry of defence for its Narew programme, which will result in both the missile and launcher being built in Poland. 

‘Implementation of the Narew programme by PGZ is fundamental for our future and the security of Poland,’ Sebastian Chwałek, deputy CEO of PGZ, said.

‘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 defence, with our foreign partners' missile technologies, we are ready to deliver a final product to the contracting party in a short time.’

‘This further deepening of the relationship between PGZ and MBDA is a great success for European defence co-operation. 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 programmes,’ Jan Grabowski, MBDA's Delegate in Poland, added.

Utilising a next-generation active radar seeker and soft-launch technologies, CAMM is able to rapidly defeat large numbers of modern air threats and is suitable for both land and maritime air defence applications.
