During MSPO 2018 in Kielce, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) presented the BARAK-MX land-based and maritime air and missile defence system for the first time in Poland. It is a candidate system for the NAREW programme, which envisages between six and eleven short-range NAREW batteries, intended as replacements for the S-125 NEWA-SC and 2K12 KUB systems. Several companies are competing for the contract, including: MBDA with CAMM/CAMM-ER and MICA; Diehl Defence with IRIS-T SL; Kongsberg with NASAMS; MEADS; Rafael, with BARAK-8; and Roketsan with HISAR. BARAK-MX was unveiled by the company in early June 2018.
