On October 8, 2014 Wojskowe Zakłady Uzbrojenia S.A. signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Raytheon Company for industrial cooperation on assistance in acquiring the “Wisła” Medium-Range Air and Missile Defense System. Cooperation between companies includes ground equipment of PATRIOT launcher and selected components of air and missile defense system as well as developing integrated logistic support system throughout the serviceable life of the equipment.
Raytheon continues to pursue opportunities with Polish industry in preparation for the WISLA program. The company's offer for WISLA includes the development with Polish industry of a next generation Patriot solution.
Patriot is designed with modular components allowing the system to be continually upgraded and modernized.
Today, Patriot is the only combat-proven air and missile defense system, protecting the U.S. and allied forces around the world. Its 12-nation global community, including 5 NATO nations and future Patriot partners offer Poland benefits through system enhancement, training, maintenance, testing, logistics and shared costs.
