March 27, 2004

Initially focusing on radar technologies, Lockheed Martin has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Poland’s leading defence electronics company, Przemyslowy Instytut Telekomunikacji (PIT), to pursue industrial cooperation related to missile defence.

The MoU outlines the areas of cooperation between the two companies, agrees on ways to exchange proprietary information and establishes a business development steering committee. Under the agreement, the two companies will collaborate on co-development of radar and command and control technologies for missile defence applications with Lockheed Martin’s Radar Systems leading the effort on behalf of the corporation.

Considering the long term opportunities, PIT director Roman Dufrene, observed, “Signing an MoU with Lockheed Martin may give us access to new markets and technology and lead to further industrial cooperation for missile defence between our two nations.”
