Poland awards Wisła and Narew contracts
A PLN233 million ($57.1 million) agreement was signed with state-owned company Wojskowe Zakłady Łączności Nr 1 (WZL1) for the supply of four mobile communications nodes (MCC1) for the Wisła system.
The MCC1s will be delivered under the first phase of the programme in 2024 and provide communication between the Integrated Air and Missile Defence Battle Command System (IBCS), the national communication system and elements of the Wisła system in addition to securing integration of the Bystra radar with the IBCS.
The Armament Inspectorate also announced a PLN18 million contract with the PGZ-Narew consortium for management and integration of components of the Narew short-range air defence (SHORAD) programme.
This is the first deal awarded under this effort and will be valid for the entire period of implementation of Narew.
