Northrop Grumman in Poland

Poland’s strategic position at the crossroads of Eastern and Western Europe requires a robust national defense to keep the country and its citizens safe. Northrop Grumman is proud to partner with the Polish government to help modernize its defense capabilities.

We understand the need and associated requirements to field systems and capabilities that provide a combined forces approach to defense and are interoperable with NATO allies. And we stand ready to help build sovereign defense capabilities through our partnerships with Polish companies, our offset agreements and support to the Polish industrial base.

We are committed to Poland for the long-term. Our company and its employees stand ready to support not just Poland’s national security efforts, but also be part of its economy and community.

Integrated Battle Command System (IBCS)

The Polish government selected IBCS to serve as the centerpiece of the country’s modernization strategy for their WISLA Medium Range air and missile defense program, becoming the first international partner to acquire this transformational capability.

IBCS is a software-defined, hardware-enabled system that integrates and optimizes every-sensor/best-effector operations using a net-centric Integrated Fire Control Network that senses, identifies, tracks and defeats air and missile threats. The system’s resilient, open, modular, scalable architecture is foundational to deploying a truly integrated network of all available assets in the battlespace, regardless of source, service or domain.

IBCS enables the efficient and affordable integration of current and future systems, including assets deployed over IP-enabled networks, counter-UAS systems, 4th- and 5th-generation aircraft, space-based sensors and more.

Key Capabilities in Poland

Advanced Weapons

Bushmaster Chain Gun

Northrop Grumman has a long-standing relationship with the Polish Land Forces, providing them with the MK44 30×173 mm Bushmaster Chain Gun integrated on to the KTO Rosomak infantry fighting vehicle produced by Poland’s Armaments Group. The Rosomak integration makes Poland the largest user and most extensive installed base of our MK44 Bushmaster Chain Gun worldwide. This is key to providing both an overmatch capability and interoperability with allied nations.

The MK44 is being integrated on to neighboring Lithuania’s new infantry combat vehicle and the US Army up fitted its Germany-based 2nd Cavalry Regiment’s Stryker fleet with the XM813, a variant of the MK44, featuring a heavier barrel, dual recoil dampers and the ability to fire the company’s programmable air burst munition (MK310).

Poland also is the largest user of Northrop Grumman’s aftermarket services. Each year, we provide maintenance and user training as well as spare parts to keep the Polish Land Forces’ Rosomak fleet combat ready.

Advanced Anti-Radiation Guided Missile (AARGM)

Northrop Grumman is an affordable innovator of next generation strike weapons capable of ensuring access to A2/AD environments and preserving freedom of maneuver in joint operations while disabling modern enemy air defense systems.

AARGM is a game-changing medium-range air-to-ground missile with the ability to detect, identify, engage and destroy enemy air defenses, Anti-Access Area Denial (A2AD) threats and other time-critical, mobile targets.

AARGM’s unique combat capability significantly increases the probability of successful engagements, minimizes the chance of collateral damage and eliminates the need to fly continuous suppression sorties throughout the duration of a conflict due to AARGM’s inherent ability to Destroy Enemy Air Defenses (DEAD) vs HARMs limited capability to only Suppress Enemy Air Defenses (SEAD).
