Poland has announced it has signed a deal to buy four aerostat-based early warning radar systems from the United States for nearly $1 billion.

In a statement, Polish Minister of Defense Kosiniak-Kamysz said, “Poland will be the second country in the world to use such a system. These aerostats will be financed by a loan provided by the United States.” According to Poland, the acquisition will be financed through a loan from the United States.

According to the Defense Ministry, “These aerostats can detect a wide range of objects, such as missiles, aircraft, drones, and seaborne units.”

Poland’s move comes in response to heightened security concerns following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. The new systems will be stationed at military bases in Poland’s eastern and northeastern regions, bordering Belarus and the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad, enhancing the nation’s defense capabilities.
