Poland Brings Early Warning to Aerostat for $1.2 Billion
The State Department has approved a possible FMS to Poland of Airspace and Surface Radar Reconnaissance aerostat systems for approximately $1.2 billion.

The Defence Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) delivered the required certification, notifying Congress of this possible sale today.

Poland has requested to buy Airspace and Surface Radar Reconnaissance (ASRR) aerostat systems; Airborne Early Warning (AEW) Radars with Identification of Friend or Foe (IFF) capability; electronic sensor systems; mooring systems with powered tether with embedded fibre optics; Ground Control Systems (GCS). The estimated total program cost is $1.2 billion.

DSCA has not provided information about the dimensions of Aerostat, where Raytheon Intelligence and Space will be the main contractor. Raytheon’s 74-meter aerostat was tested at the White Sand test range back in June 2023 for early warning capacity.
