WCBKT S.A. at MSPO 2021

This year’s, 29th International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO in Kielce allowed WCBKT S.A. not only to present its offer on technological solutions intended for the Polish Armed Forces, but also to participate in number of conferences and trade meetings which opened new opportunities for cooperation with potential institutional, R&D and business partners.

An matter of special importance for WCBKT S.A. was honoring the company with the Golden Quality Certificate by the Quality Certification Center.

Among the new, presented proposals were, above all, Ground Power Unit – LUZES II/M series VI which is a new generation of well-known LUZES II/M GPU that supply on-board aircraft systems with a.c. and d.c. power, engine start-up and onboard equipment technical condition checks of all types of aircraft operating in PAF. The new GPU is characterized by a single container design, ability to provide two types of energy 28V d.c. and 115V a.c. and a remote diagnostics system that allows remote transmission of data on technical condition and facilitates the planning of periodic maintenance. In addition, the constructors made space for remote control devices, which allows GPU to be started and turned off by a technician sitting, for example, in the cabin of an aircraft, 20 meters away from GPU.

Aforementioned, previous version of the device, consisting of two containers, was made available to the United States Army, which presented at MSPO, among others Boeing AH-64E Apache Guardian combat helicopter. The crew of the helicopter from Fort Riley, Kansas, which uses the facilities of the 33rd Transport Aviation Base in Powidz, made use of LUZES II/M series V GPU during the MSPO while checking the technical condition of on-board systems. That clearly indicates that GPUs manufactured by WCBKT S.A. can be successfully used to service allied countries’ aircraft. AH-64E Guardian helicopters are currently supporting the Atlantic Resolve U.S. mission Army Europe and Africa on the territory of Latvia and constitute the backbone of the armament of the assault and reconnaissance battalions of the US Army aviation brigades.

Striving to diversify product portfolio, WCBKT S.A. in cooperation with the Military University of Technology, build a system that allowed the company to enter the group of companies creating technological solutions within the land domain. STOPFIRE® system presented during MSPO is the first, completely Polish, automatic fire extinguishing and explosion suppression system in the driving and crew compartments, dedicated to tanks, combat and engineering military vehicles. Less than 150 ms elapses from the moment the fire is detected to its extinguishing. STOPFIRE® was installed in crew and drive compartments on the NBPWP Borsuk prototype and has certificate of the Military Institute of Armored and Automotive Technology, documenting the compliance of actual parameters with those declared by WCBKT S.A.
