Kongsberg signs Japan follow-on JSM contract
Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has signed a follow-on contract with Japan to supply the Joint Strike Missile (JSM) for its fleet of F-35 combat aircraft.
The JSM is a stealth air-to surface missile designed to strike well-defended sea and land targets across long distances.
As the missile can be carried internally in the F-35 it ensures the aircraft’s low-signature capabilities.
Eirik Lie, president, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace, said: ‘The international F-35 user community is showing great interest in the JSM. Kongsberg is very proud to have been selected by Japan to provide the JSM for their F-35 fleet. Our relationship is growing even stronger with this follow-on contract.’
