Two Polish defense firms, PIT-RADWAR and Wojskowe Zakłady Elektroniczne, part of the Polish Armaments Group (PGZ), have secured contracts with Norway's Kongsberg Defense & Aerospace (KDA) for two Naval Missile Units and Naval Strike Missile (NSM) production and maintenance.
The contract for the construction of two Naval Missile Units destined for the Polish Navy was formally executed by PITRADWAR S.A., resulting from a prior accord established on September 5, 2023. This earlier deal between the Armament Agency and Kongsberg centered around the procurement of coastal missile systems equipped with NSM missiles.
Currently, the Polish Navy operates two Coastal Defence Systems (known as NDR systems in Poland), with one acquired in 2008 and delivered in 2012, while the other was commissioned in 2014 and transferred to the army in 2017. PIT-RADWAR had played an integral role in implementation of both of these contracts.
In a separate agreement, Wojskowe Zakłady Elektroniczne S.A. has committed to the exchange of knowledge and technology concerning the maintenance and manufacturing of NSM missiles.
Under the terms of the contract signed by PIT-RADWAR, the company is tasked with constructing and delivering vehicles to four Coastal Missile Squadrons. Each squadron comprises a range of vehicles, including three Mobile Communication Centers (MCC), one Squadron Command Vehicle (SCV), and two Battery Command Vehicles (BCV), alongside the Command Control Vehicle.
The total value of this contract exceeds PLN 1.1 billion ($260M), with delivery slated for completion by 2029.
