Loitering Munitions for Small Units
Poland’s WB Group will be focusing visitor attention on its command and control (C2) and strike technologies during IDEX 2019 in Abu Dhabi next week.
The company, the largest privately-held defence contractor in Poland, designs and manufactures state-of-the-art systems which integrate communications, unmanned aerial systems, loitering munitions and fire control subsystems into robust and agile integrated solutions, delivering enhanced capabilities to vehicle and weapon systems platforms, as well as dismounted troops.
Among the advanced systems to be showcased at IDEX will be:
FONET – a modular, scalable C2 systems, first fielded in 2008 and since integrated onto more than 6,000 vehicles worldwide. FONET allows for digital voice communications and data exchange between multiple vehicle crews and forms the basis for building complex battlefield management systems.
WARMATE – a loitering munition designed to support dynamic combat environments, with a range of mission-specific payloads including surveillance, detection, target recognition, anti-materiel and anti-personnel, to include HE and fragmentation warheads. WARMATE can be operated by small units or as a part of the company’s battlefield management and fire control solution (the TOPAZ Battlefield Overwatch Strike Capability – which will also be on display), in concert with direct and indirect fire platforms and infantry.
Representatives from the parent group in Poland and its US company will be on hand to explain the company’s wide range of capabilities.
