BAE Selected for Polish Mi-24 Upgrade (Mar. 1)

BAE Systems today welcomed the announcement of its selection, by Poland, as avionics systems integrator for the production of two NATO-interoperable Mi-24 helicopter prototypes.

Jim Field, BAE Systems Avionics Group Head of Battlefield Systems said:

“This important decision realises the Polish government’s plan to provide its allies with a highly capable, NATO-compatible, troop carrying attack helicopter and recognises our capabilities in the area of systems integration. Poland is one of the first countries to make a sophisticated Russian platform NATO interoperable and we look forward to partnering with them to deliver the Mi-24 upgrade.”

The Avionics integration includes a state of the art open architectures mission system including the only in service fully integrated helicopter Electronic Warfare system.

BAE Systems has major operations across five continents and customers in some 130 countries. The company employs more than 90,000 people and generates annual sales of approximately £12 billion through its wholly owned and joint-venture operations.
