First Polish PGZ-MBDA Mala NAREW SHORAD iLauncher Undergoing Trials

Polish Armaments Group (PGZ) and its subsidiaries, PIT-RADWAR, JELCZ and WZU, are working with MBDA to progress on the short-range air defence (SHORAD) solution, known as “Mała NAREW,” with the first two Polish iLaunchers of the system already in Poland undergoing integration and trials ahead of delivery to the customer.

This project aims to deliver rapidly two SHORAD-class fire units equipped with CAMM missiles, integrated with SOŁA radar stations and the Polish C2 system.

The “Mała NAREW” units are being adapted to work within one SHORAD class solution. Functional integration of the radar stations, C2 systems and CAMM missile fire control software is going hand-in-hand with the physical integration of subsequent iLauncher with JELCZ trucks chassis. The first training sessions for operators of iLauncher and Polish components of the “Mała NAREW” system has already been conducted.

The “Mała NAREW” program, in addition to the fire units themselves, also includes a training and logistics package. Under the project, PGZ and MBDA are conducting integration of selected British and Polish elements of air defence systems as well as provide technical support for the ordered equipment at the operational stage. The contract provides for the delivery of the first “Mała NAREW” fire unit this year, and the second in 2023.
