At Eurosatory 2022, Kongsberg highlighted a network-based fire control solution which allows the operation of Protector weapons systems over a range of mediums.

Kongsberg Land Systems VP marketing and sales Arne Gjennestad touted the ability to share targets between turrets and RWS as a benefit of the company’s weapons systems during a 16 June interview at Eurosatory in Paris.

Gjennestad told Shephard of the company’s Multi-User Multi-Station capability, which enables any Protector family RWS or turret operator to take control of any other Protector weapon system on a network, either wirelessly or wired.

He added that the target sharing between turrets could be passed up the C2 chain to report the location of threats to other effectors such as artillery if needed.
