Polish defense company WB Group is offering a new and enhanced variant of loitering munition system Warmate, also known as small suicide drone, for Australian Defence Forces.

According to the company’s statement, the company has signed an agreement for distribution of the loitering munition system Warmate with its Australian partner CABLEX. The agreement was signed in the presence of Australian Ministry of Defence Industry Mr. Steven Ciobo and Polish Ambassador in Australia Mr. Michał Kołodziejski.

Warmate is a loitering munition designed to loiter the battlefield and attack targets by self-destructing into them. A loitering munition is a weapon system category in which the munition loiters around the target area for some time, searches for targets, and attacks once a target is located.

Formal signature of the agreement, on behalf of WB GROUP and CABLEX took place on February 28 at AVALON 2019, one of the largest aviation, aerospace and defense events for the Asia Pacific.

The agreement with CABLEX stipulates that the company will be the exclusive distributor of WARMATE in Australia and the system integrator according to the requirements of the Australian armed forces.

“We are pleased with today’s agreement to provide Australia with a high-quality, affordable solution,” said Piotr Wojciechowski, the president of WB GROUP” the agreement means not only providing the loitering munition system WARMATE to the Australian Army but also strengthening the bilateral cooperation between the two countries in the defense sector”.

The selection of the mission profile is being performed by choosing the proper payload/warhead just before the system operation. The payloads are interchangeable by sharing common interfaces. WARMATE can be operated as an autonomous and independent system, being transported by the army or Special Forces troops. The system has also the capability of being installed onboard the military vehicles, such us the terrain vehicle or armored personnel carrier. The subsystem as the Ground Control Station or Ground Data Terminal can be seamlessly integrated with the vehicle?s onboard installation making it a part of the system.
