Raytheon offering boosterless SkyCeptor for Poland's Narew programme
Raytheon has revealed that it is offering a boosterless version of its SkyCeptor interceptor for Poland’s Narew short-range air defence requirement.
SkyCeptor defeats short- to medium-range ballistic and cruise missiles and other advanced air defence threats, and Raytheon is also offering it with a booster for the second phase of Poland’s Wisla medium-range air defence programme.
‘Providing SkyCeptor for the Narew and Wisla programmes underscores Raytheon's commitment to collaborate with Polish industry and create advanced technology jobs for the Polish people,’ Sam Deneke, Raytheon Land Warfare Systems VP, said.
Raytheon says that SkyCeptor for Wisla Phase II would offer up to 60% Polish industrial workshare, with the potential to grow should the interceptor be designated for the Narew programme.
SkyCeptor's infrared and active guidance for targeting makes it effective in all weather conditions, Raytheon says, adding that it does not need a warhead.
The interceptor is a derivative of the Stunner missile that defeats threats upon impact, which is in full-rate production for the Israeli Defense Forces and is proven to defeat short-range ballistic missiles, representing 92% of the world's theatre ballistic missile threat inventory, according to Raytheon.
