BAE SYSTEMS AT MSPO 2023: PARTNERSHIP WITH POLISH ENTITIES AND IMPORTANT ARMS TECHNOLOGIES
Gabby Costigan, managing director of the business development group at BAE Systems, said: "BAE Systems' ties with Poland are strong and lasting. The cooperation between our teams in Poland and our customers and industrial partners throughout the country ensures security and supports economic growth. BAE Systems does not lose sight of Poland's defence sector's needs, which must be met effectively and reliably. We are proud to carry out this mission. MSPO serves as our proof of constant commitment to ensuring the safety of Poles."
The BAE Systems expo stand will host customers, industry partners and foreign delegations who will have the opportunity to explore the multi-domain capabilities offered by BAE Systems radar stations, ammunition and integrated communications equipment. On display - the advanced electronic warfare devices, head-up displays, and ammunition for F-16 and F-35 aircraft, Apache helicopters and other aircraft, including a laser guidance kit for APKWS® missiles. The company will also present a head-up display - HUD Digital Light Engine Head-Up Display(DLE) and operationally proven equipment ensuring the survival of aircraft on the battlefield, including a missile launch warning system Common Missile Warning System, and an advanced situational awareness system for crews of armoured vehicles, 360 MVP SensorTM.
The armoured recovery vehicle M88 A2 will be on display both as a model at the BAE Systems booth and as a full-size vehicle at the US Army show. The first three M88A2s vehicles were delivered to the Polish Army in June 2023, and another 35 vehicles are to be delivered soon. As the only vehicle capable of technical evacuation of an Abrams tank from the battlefield, the M88A2 can tow any other armoured vehicle serving in the Polish Army, which makes it an ideal candidate for a unified technical rescue vehicle.
Other presented land systems galore include models of self-propelled howitzer - ARCHER, 155 mm M777 light towed howitzer and multi-role armoured personnel carrier Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle. The AMPV has been designed to accompany Abrams and other tanks in armoured brigades as a command and medical evacuation vehicle. There will also be information on naval cannons such as 57Mk3 and 40Mk4.
BAE Systems has established lasting relationships with local entities as a trusted partner for safer Poland. The company's Digital Intelligence department has a centre dealing with cybersecurity technologies in Poznań, and other BAE Systems teams support the Polish armed forces in the implementation of their tasks. A number of Polish companies are suppliers in important armaments programs: the M88 recovery vehicle, the CV90 infantry fighting vehicle, as well as in several naval programmes. Similarly, the Krab self-propelled Howitzer program supports job retention in the country.
