Raytheon, Kongsberg team up for Naval Strike Missile
Raytheon and Kongsberg have formed a teaming agreement for the Naval Strike Missile (NSM), as announced on 9 April.
The agreement is the second step in the two companies' efforts to offer Offensive Anti-Surface Warfare (OASuW) solutions to meet international requirements. They formed a similar teaming agreement in 2014 for the air-launched version of the NSM, the Joint Strike Missile.
Taylor Lawrence, president, Raytheon Missile Systems, said: 'Raytheon and Kongsberg have a proud history of consistent partnerships to produce and improve the world's most trusted weapon systems.
'This agreement enables us to bring a complete suite of solutions to the warfighter for the critical OASuW mission.'
Harald Ånnestad, president, Kongsberg Defence Systems, said: 'We are very pleased to be extending our teaming with Raytheon to also include the proven NSM.
'Together we will be able to leverage Norway's investment favourably for all our allies to solve the critical OASuW mission.'
The NSM has an effective range of over 200km against land and sea targets. It is the main weapon for the new corvettes and frigates of Norway and Poland's land-based coastal defence.
