New technologies in military service

Asseco was also at the Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa stand, where the ground control station control panel – the Asseco GCS – supporting the unmanned aircraft system Drozd was presented. In addition, visitors of the Asseco stand had the opportunity to receive full information on, among others, ‘The prototype of a secure system for data transfer between different classified networks using public networks’, and ‘An integrated system for developing crisis management plans based on modern information technologies’, i.e. projects implemented with NCRD funding. TSG, an Israeli company planning to enter the NATO countries market offering solutions for land forces and navy, presented its offer alongisde Asseco.
Andrzej Sobolewski, Sales Specialist at Asseco Poland: Our stand was very popular. We met with business people and with representatives from Ministry of Defence, Ministry of Internal Affairs, Polish Border Guard, special purpose units, military schools, and regional administration. They were primarily interested in the issue of purchasing IT systems by the Ministry of Defence, and the possibility to cooperate with us and participate in international projects.
More than 609 companies from 30 countries attended MSPO 2016. The President of the Republic of Poland Andrzej Duda has once again assumed the honorary patronage over the fair.
