Kongsberg to upgrade the Fridtjof Nansen frigates
Kongsberg Defence Systems has entered into an agreement worth $36.3 million with the Norwegian Defence Material Agency (NDMA) to upgrade the combat management system and the active sonar system of the Fridtjof Nansen-class frigates, the company announced on 23 November.
The work perfomed under the contract will extend the lifespan of the Kongsberg-supplied anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare systems based on its combat management system architecture and integrated with the Aegis combat system. The company has conducted update and maintenance activities regularly since the class was introduced.
Eirik Lie, acting president at Kongsberg Defence Systems said: 'Kongsberg is pleased to be part of the upgrade programme extending the lifetime of the systems on board the Fridtjof Nansen class.’
The work will be performed over a four year period.
