Syracuse - Jan 29, 2004
Lockheed Martin signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Poland's leading defense electronics company, Przemyslowy Instytut Telekomunikacji (PIT), to pursue industrial cooperation related to missile defense, initially focusing on radar technologies.

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.

"This MOU paves the way for our companies to cooperatively develop technologies and systems that will improve the effectiveness of our nations' defenses against the growing threat of ballistic missile proliferation," said Dave Kier, Lockheed Martin's vice president and managing director for missile defense programs. "Experts in both companies will use advanced radar technology as a starting point for what promises to be a productive, long-term relationship."

"Signing an MOU with Lockheed Martin may give us access to new markets and technology and lead to further industrial cooperation for missile defense between our two nations," observed PIT Director Roman Dufrene.

Under the MOU, Lockheed Martin and PIT will collaborate on co-development of radar and command and control technologies for missile defense applications. Lockheed Martin's Radar Systems business in Syracuse, NY, will lead the effort on behalf of the Corporation.

PIT is the largest electronics research and development center in Poland. It has been in business for 70 years and has more than 50 years of experience in military electronics, including research, development and manufacturing associated with radar technology, reconnaissance equipment and command and control systems.
