Lockheed, Poland Seal PAC-3 MSE Missile Deal

Poland and Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) have signed an agreement for the company to build Patriot Advanced Capability-3 Missile Segment Enhancement missiles and associated equipment for the Polish military.

Lockheed said Wednesday Poland will be its fifth international customer to procure PAC-3 MSE missiles.

The system is designed to engage ballistic missiles, cruise missiles and aircraft threats using “hit-to-kill” technology.

Tim Cahill, vice president of integrated air and missile defense at Lockheed’s missiles and fire control business, said that PAC-3 MSEs will be used with Poland’s WISŁA air and missile defense system to help protect the Polish armed forces, citizens and infrastructure.

Cahill added that the company will work with the Polish Armaments Group on a WISŁA technology transfer effort.

Lockheed previously secured deals to supply PAC-3 MSEs to the U.S., Qatar, Japan, Romania and the United Arab Emirates.
