Eurotech and PIT-Radwar jointly-developed E-310 unmanned aerial system
     
PGZ will propose the high-tech product called E-310 developed by PIT-Radwar and Eurotech, a Polish company. PGZ experts underline that the proposed set is comprehensive and constitutes a whole, which means that it is a unique solution based on the potential of the Polish industry only.

In the “mini” category, the Army intends to procure 15 sets under codename “Wizjer”, including logistics and training systems as well. In this case PGZ, using the experience and potential of Wojskowe Zaklady Lotnicze no. 2 in Bydgoszcz, is planning to participate in the tendering procedure, creating expertise regarding the development of a technology corresponding to the “mini” class within the Group beforehand.

As the leader of the Polish armaments industry, we have resources and expertise to take part in the procedures for unmanned aircraft systems based on domestic technologies and those procured from abroad. We cooperate in this regard both within PGZ itself with WZL no. 2, PIT-Radwar, PCO, and with the Air Force Institute of Technology,” said President of the Management Board of PGZ, Wojciech Dabrowski.

The participation of PGZ in the construction of unmanned systems is supposed to be broader and not to be limited only to the needs of the Polish Army specified today. PGZ experts emphasise that the Group intends to develop the technology and manufacturing of any types of unmanned platforms.

The E-310 is a Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR), low-to-medium altitude, long endurance UAV platform for civil and military applications. The unmanned platform E-310 is also characterized by its rapid deployment, easy operation, and ability to take-off almost everywhere. The flexible configurability and the 20Kg-payload capacity of the platform provides a wide range of applications for civilian, military, and other surveillance services.

The E-310 has a flight endurance of 8-12h. Its service ceiling rises 5,000m and it has a speed range of 120-160 km/h; and an operation radius of 150 km.
