The order concerns repairs, diagnostics and maintenance for the onboard ELINT/SIGINT systems of the GUNICA M and S platforms. According to the requirements, the agreement in question has been signed with a validity term defined as 2017-2019. Moreover, it is also assumed that assets allocated to implementation may be higher, within the optional expansion of the subject of the agreement.
According to the announcement made by the 3rd Logistics Base published in the Official Journal of the EU, the agreement has been granted through negotiation without an announcement, due to the “urgent need” arising on the grounds of a “crisis”. PIT-RADWAR company, who has developed and created the SIGINT system of the PRP-25M and PRP-25S (Gunica M and Gunica S) platforms is going to benefit from the aforesaid agreement. The manufacturer in question is fully entitled to service, maintain and support the operational use of the Gunica suite. Net value of the order awarded on 5th June 2017 is said to be equal to an amount of PLN 13 650 000.
The order is implemented in an urgent manner, since it concerns maintenance of the EW systems in a fully operational status, with those systems being embedded within the PRP-25M and PRP-25S solutions (GUNICA), utilized by the Air Force SIGINT units, for the purpose of automated detection, recognition, tracking, monitoring and locking-onto emitters installed on any type of aircraft, ground and naval platforms, and for the purpose of gathering the data that would allow the user to determine the position of those units.
