Diehl's IRIS-T-SLS shown with Polish SA-8 system

Robin Hughes, London - IHS Jane's Missiles & Rockets 29 September 2016

Key Points
IRIS-T-SLS integration is a private industrial initiative from Diehl/WZU
Diehl BGT Defence is already offerings its IRIS-T-SLM interceptor for Poland's NAREW requirement

Diehl BGT Defence of Germany has teamed with Wojskowe Zaklady Uzbrojenia (WZU) from Poland's PGZ consortium to integrate the imaging infrared-guided IRIS-T-SLS
(Surface Launched Short Range) missile as an optional surface-to-air interceptor solution as part of an upgrade of the Polish Armed Forces'
Soviet-era PRWB 9A33BM2/OSA-P (NATO reporting name: SA-8 'Gecko') 6x6 self-propelled surface-to-air missile system.

surface-to-air missile system during MSPO 2016 in Kielce, Poland. (R Hughes)

The upgrade of the PRWB 9A33BM OSA system - primed by WZU teamed with PGZ's Pit-Radwar and Mesko - includes a new NATO-standard Mark XIIA Mode 5 and
Mode S identification friend-or-foe (IFF) interrogator, new cryptographic computer, and new IFF antenna; new long-range thermovision day/night sensor,
new digital target detection, acquisition, and tracking displays, improved radio-electronic masking, a remote fire control capability, and integration of an inertial
land navigation system supported by a global positioning system (GPS) function.

Interesting SA-8 upgrade, Greece already uses IRIS-T missiles.

"Interesting SA-8 upgrade, Greece already uses IRIS-T missiles."

Yes since producing even parts of the missile..


IRIS-T air to air missile. Manufacturer of the missile’s Warhead&Safety-Arming Unit.


INTRACOM Defense Electronics by participating in the multinational co production of the missile, designed, developed and is manufacturing the telemetry unit, the guidance section power supply and the field test equipment of the IRIS-T, using state-of-the-art manufacturing procedures in the field of missile electronics.

Plus IDE
