SFTE SpetsTechnoExport and Artem Holding Company, parts of the "Ukroboronprom", signed an agreement with the Polish company WB Electronics on the further development of a bilateral consortium formed in 2016, as well as a new contract for the production of R-27-R1 guided medium-range air-to-air missiles for the Polish Air Force.
The new agreements were arranged during the MSPO 2017 international defense industry exhibition held in Kielce (Poland). The signing of documents expands the capabilities of consortium participants in holding new tenders for the supply of aviation weapons for the Polish Defense Ministry.
“WB Electronics remains our exclusive partner for the further production and supply of R-27 air-to-air missiles for the needs of the Polish Air Force", - SpetsTechnoExport director Pavlo Burbul said.
Another joint project is multifunctional complex "ZRN-01 Stokrotka Daisy ", intended to destroy enemy fortifications and live forces, as well as UAVs, was also represented at MSPO-2017.
In 2016, an agreement on joint participation in the development of new defense projects was signed between the SFTE “SpetsTechnoExport,” SJSHC “Artem” and WB Electronics. The rocket system ZRN-01 Stokrotka Daisy became the first jointly implemented project. To destroy targets it uses highly effective 80 mm rocket-propelled projectiles, manufactured by SJSHC “Artem”. It takes 1-5 projectiles to destroy an air target at a range of up to 5 km – that’s the most effective cost\damage solution (QPR).
To develop the complex, the project participants organized cooperation of the leading enterprises of their countries. This allowed to integrate the most up-to-date developments in the fields of rocket and missile engineering, radar, air defense control and coordination systems and systems for detecting and tracking targets in the optical range.
As reported, the consortium created by SpetsTechnoExport and WB Electronics in 2016 won the tender announced by the Polish Defense Ministry in 2015 for the supply of air missiles for the Polish Air Force.
