In the extreme case, the loss of control over one's own airspace can also mean the loss of state sovereignty, with all the consequences for our security. Therefore, ensuring effective airspace defense is one of the main priorities of the Ministry of Defense in the ongoing modernization of the Czech Army.
CZECH INDUSTRY WILL HAVE A SIGNIFICANT SHARE ON THE NEW SPYDER AIR DEFENSE SYSTEM
The most significant project of modernization of the Czech Army's air defense assets is the acquisition of a new short- and medium-range anti-aircraft missile kit (SHORAD) with an estimated value of approximately 450 mil. USD. The currently acquired modern anti-aircraft complex SPYDER, manufactured by the Israeli state-owned company Rafael, will replace the outdated Soviet KUB system from the mid-1980s and will mean a fundamental change in the army's ability to effectively defend airspace over the Czech Republic.
