Raytheon offers boosterless SkyCeptor weapon for Poland's Narew air defense system
SkyCeptor defeats short- to medium-range ballistic and cruise missiles and other advanced air defense threats.
"Providing SkyCeptor for the Narew and Wisla programs underscores
SkyCeptor for Wisla Phase II offers as much as 60 percent Polish industrial workshare, with the potential to grow should the interceptor be designated for the Narew program.
SkyCeptor's infrared and active guidance for targeting makes it effective in all weather conditions and doesn't need a warhead. The interceptor is a derivative of the Stunner missile that destroys threats with sheer force of impact. Stunner is in full-rate production for the Israeli Defense Forces and is proven to defeat all short-range ballistic missiles, representing 92 percent of the world's theater ballistic missile threat inventory.
