PZL-Świdnik exhibits advanced technology at EuroPoltech 2013

PZL-Świdnik SA, an AgustaWestland company, is pleased to announce its participation at EUROPOLTECH 2013 (17-19th April, Warsaw, EXPO XXI Warsaw International Expocentre).

At the exhibition, the company will be displaying advanced rotorcraft technologies ideally suited for performing law enforcement missions, especially the SW-4 Solo RUAS/OPH rotorcraft unmanned aerial system and the latest generation helicopters, the AW169 and AW149.

As a third pillar of AgustaWestland’s European operations, PZL-Świdnik has access to state-of-the-art technology and the opportunity to collaborate in developing technologically advanced projects capable of conducting law enforcement missions.

The first one is the SW-4 Solo RUAS/OPH (Rotorcraft Unmanned Aerial System/Optionally Piloted Helicopter), based on the proven light single-engine SW-4 helicopter. The Solo, which is the result of close collaboration between AgustaWestland and PZL-Świdnik’s engineering teams, assures maximum operational flexibility as a result of its ability to perform both manned and unmanned operations in various environments. The Solo can perform tasks such as intelligence, surveillance, as well as monitoring and intervention missions.

A further example is the AW169, the latest generation light twin-engine helicopter. Superior performance and cabin space make the aircraft ideally suited to perform a wide range of missions, including: Air Observation, Aerial Support, Drug Enforcement, Command & Control, Border Patrol and the insertion of Incident Response Teams and heavy duty air support. The AW169 helicopter together with the AW139 and AW189 create AgustaWestland’s Family of the latest generation helicopters. AgustaWestland has secured orders from customers worldwide for over 70 helicopters so far.

PZL-Świdnik will also present the sole new generation AW149 multipurpose military helicopter at EUROPOLTECH 2013. The AW149 is the helicopter the Company is offering to meet the 70 helicopter requirement of the Polish Armed Forces. The AW149 is the best Polish solution to meet the future fleet modernization and operational requirements of the Polish Armed Forces.

“Our attendance at EUROPOLTECH 2013 allows us to showcase the unmatched capabilities of PZL-Świdnik as the only Polish manufacturer with the full capability to design, develop and produce state-of-the-art rotorcraft. The products we are presenting are examples of the most advanced technologies which are setting new standards in the helicopter sector and which can support the future requirements of the Polish police, as well as the Polish civilian and military national security services,“ said Nicola Bianco, Managing Director, PZL-Świdnik SA.

PZL-Świdnik has had a history of fruitful cooperation with the Polish police, as well as the civilian and military security services. The collaboration began in 1995 with the delivery of four PZL Kania helicopters to the Polish Police Headquarters and the Polish Board Guard Headquarters. To date, 18 helicopters produced by PZL-Świdnik operated by the Polish uniformed services have logged over 54,000 flight hours. The aircraft have proven to be very reliable and efficient platforms capable of performing the wide range of law enforcement missions.

“Three types of helicopters, produced by PZL-Świdnik are currently in service with the Polish police, i.e. the Mi-2, the PZL Kania and the PZL W-3/W-3A Sokól. These helicopters have proved to be very resistant, reliable and easily operated during their long service with the Polish police aviation. Helicopters produced by PZL-Świdnik, thanks to their versatility and multi-mission capabilities, are suitable for a wide range of law enforcement missions, i.e. SAR and observation operations. Cooperation with PZL-Świdnik has been effective and the producer has tried to respond promptly and flexibly in case of any failure”, said Junior Officer Michał Czerwiński, Deputy Head of the Police Aviation Section of the Main Staff.

With over 60 years of experience and having produced over 7400 helicopters, PZL-Świdnik is the only Polish OEM with the capabilities to undertake helicopter design, research & development, system integration, manufacturing, support, training and upgrades. PZL-Świdnik’s offers the police and the civilian and military national security services a wide range of state-of-the-art helicopters proven in the harshest mission conditions, as well as 24/7 customer support and training solutions to meet the most demanding requirements of the Polish forces.
