BAE Systems to Demonstrate Its Range of Defense and Security Solutions at MSPO 2023

Kielce, Poland: BAE Systems (Hall F, stand 9) will demonstrate its range of defence and security solutions for land, sea, air, space and cyberspace at MSPO 2023. During the show, held at Targi Kielce, Poland, from 5 to 8 September, the Company will also showcase its teams working in Poland, its partnerships with the Polish military and other companies in the Polish defence sector. The BAE Systems stand will welcome customers, industry partners and international delegations who will all have the chance to see multi-domain capabilities such as radars, munitions and integrated communications. Advanced electronic warfare, head-up displays (HUDs) and munitions for F-16s, F-35s, Apaches and other aircraft including APKWS® laser-guidance kit and Digital Light Engine (DLE) HUD will be highlighted.

“The relationship between BAE Systems and Poland is strong and enduring. From our teams in Poland to our customers and industrial partners across the country, our work together ensures security and economic growth. BAE Systems never loses sight of the ongoing need for effective, robust national defence for Poland. We are proud to support this crucial mission and to demonstrate at MSPO our ongoing commitment to do more for the Polish people’s security,” Gabby Costigan,, Group Managing Director, Business Development, BAE Systems said.

The Company will also display its proven aircraft survivability equipment, including the Common Missile Warning System, as well as its advanced armoured vehicle situational awareness system, the 360 MVP SensorTM. The M88A2 armoured recovery vehicle will feature both as a model on the BAE Systems stand and there will be a full-sized system on the US Army stand. The first three M88A2s were delivered to the Polish Army in June 2023, with a further 35 due to be delivered soon. As the only vehicle capable of recovering the Abrams tank, the M88A2 can also recover every armoured platform in the Polish Army’s inventory, making it an ideal unified recovery solution. Other land systems on show will include the ARCHER mobile howitzer, M777 lightweight towed 155mm howitzer and an Armored Multi-Purpose Vehicle (AMPV) model. The AMPV was designed specifically to accompany Abrams and other heavy tanks to support a range of operations including mission command and medevac capabilities for armoured brigades. Information on naval guns, such as the 57Mk3 and the 40Mk4, will be available to view too.

BAE Systems has an enduring relationship as Poland’s proven defence partner. The Company’s Digital Intelligence business has a facility in Poznan working on cyber security technology and additional BAE Systems teams support the Polish armed forces. Polish companies are key suppliers on important programmes, including the M88A2, the CV90 infantry fighting vehicle, several naval programmes and the Krab self-propelled howitzer, supporting jobs nationwide. Visitors to MSPO can locate BAE Systems in Hall F, stand 9.
