According to the report, during the negotiations held in March 2017 Ukroboronprom State Concern proposed to the Ministry of National Defense of Poland to cooperate under the Narew short range air defense program being implemented by Poland's PGZ jointly with the European defense consortium MBDA. Ukraine's project has the draft name R-27 ADS (Air Defense System). It envisages the joint creation of the air defense system using Ukrainian R-27 missiles made by Artem (Kyiv). The publication recalled that in 2016, Poland signed a contract with the Ukrainian company to deliver R-27R1 missiles for Polish MiG-29 fighter aircraft.

According to Altair, some elements of the system, including airborne radar, missile radar, mobile firing positions, missile tracking and control systems, and command and communication systems will be made in Poland. According to preliminary information, tests of R-27 ADS with participation of Polish military servicemen are scheduled for 2018.

As reported, in summer 2016, the consortium formed by Ukraine's Spectechnoexport and Poland's WB Electronics won a tender to supply R-27P1 medium-range air-to-air missiles for MiG-21 fighter jets of the Polish Air Force. In December 2016, Ukroboronprom and Poland's WB Electronics S.A. signed a cooperation agreement on creation of new samples of antiaircraft and surface-to-air missile weapons.
