Poland is expected to procure CAMM ahead of Kongsberg/Raytheon’s NASAMS and Rafael’s SPYDER-SR under the Narew programme.

The Polish MoD Armament Inspectorate has recommended the procurement of the MBDA Common Anti-air Modular Missile (CAMM) under the Narew short-range air defence (SHORAD) programme. 

The announcement was made by the Polish MND on Twitter on 18 November.

CAMM is a short-range, anti-aircraft and anti-missile surface-to-air missile and developed to be launched from maritime platforms, land-based platforms and aircraft.

It provides 360-degree air defence out to ranges greater than 25km, does not require a dedicated tracker/illuminator radar, according to Shephard Defence Insight.

CAMM won favour ahead of Kongsberg Defence and Aerospace and Raytheon Missiles & Defense with the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS), and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems offering its SPYDER-SR system with I-Derby and Skyceptor missiles.

In April 2021, the MND appointed the State-owned defence group PGZ as the lead contractor for the Narew programme. 

Four months later, the Armament Inspectorate signed a framework agreement with the PGZ-NAREW consortium to  establish the various conditions for contracts in Narew. 

Each deal will include the development and delivery of 23 SHORAD system sets.
