During the Kielce defence fair Boeing company is to present AH-64 Apache and AH-6i choppers, Scan Eagle UAVs and components of the KC-46A Pegasus tanker.

During this year's Kielce fair, Boeing will present scale models of the AH-64 Apache, which is rumoured to be one of the potential successors of the Mi-24 helicopters in the Polish Army. Additionally AH-6i reconnaisance-attack helicopter is also going to be presented along with a full-scale mock-up of Scan Eagle UAV. During the fair GOLDesp logistics software produced by Miro Technologies is going to be demonstrated too. Miro Technologies is Boeing's subsidiary company.

The Boeing booth located in the F hall will also feature the AROS systeem (Air Refueling Operator Station), which is used in the KC-46A Pegasus tanker, based on Boeing 767 commercial airliner. This station is equipped with a visualisation system based on 24 inch 3D monitors, cameras and electronic systems. The devices are used by the tanker operators in order to monitor the refueling process, significantly reducing the workload. There is no need to use windows for the observation purposes.
