The Lukasiewicz Research Network's PIAP Institute, teamed with the CRW Telesystem-Mesko company, unveiled a demonstrator of the ASBOP-Perkun autonomous air defence system at the International Defence Industry Exhibition MSPO being held in Kielce, Poland, from 3-6 September.

The system is intended for special operations and protection of critical infrastructure such as airports, refineries, and ports.

ASBOP-Perkun is based on the PIAP Ibis six-wheel unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) equipped with two Grom or Piorun man-portable air-defence system (MANPADS) launchers mounted on a manipulator arm. The UGV has a thermal and day sight for threat detection and identification friend-or-foe system. Targets can be set from a command centre, radar station, or the robot's own sensors.
