In 2016, an agreement on joint participation in the development of new defense projects between the SFTE “SpetsTechnoExport,” SJSHC “Artem” and WB Electronics was signed. The rocket system ZRN-01 Stokrotka Daisy became the first jointly implemented project under the agreement. To destroy targets it uses highly effective 80-mm rocket-propelled projectiles, manufactured by SJSHC “Artem”. It takes 1-5 projectiles to destroy an air target at a range of up to 5 km – that’s the most effective cost\damage solution (QPR).

To develop the complex, the project participants organized cooperation of the leading enterprises of their countries. This allowed integrate the most up-to-date developments in the fields of rocket and missile engineering, radar, air defense control and coordination systems and systems for detecting and tracking targets in the optical range.

As reported, the consortium created by SpetsTechnoExport and WB Electronics in 2016 won the tender announced by the Polish Defense Ministry in 2015 for the supply of air missiles for the Polish Air Force.
