Poland to Modernize Radar Surveillance


The Polish military is planning to modernize the country’s radar surveillance by replacing aging systems with new, more capable sensors featuring improved electronic countermeasures, resistance to jamming and seamless data connectivity to national and NATO systems. According to the Polish defense publication Defence24, the new 3D radars and passive sensors are required to cover 160 – 470 km in range. among the top priorities are the introduction of new radars capable of detecting targets with low radar cross section (RCS), such as stealth aircraft, cruise missiles and drones. Ballistic missile detection is another priority, as well as improved surveillance at low altitude, enabled by elevated (tethered) sensors.
