Kongsberg and Patria sign turreted mortar teaming agreement

30th June 2020 - 11:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace has signed a teaming agreement with Patria Oyj which will set out a framework for providing a turreted mortar solution for future US Army mortar programmes.

Both companies will work to produce and promote the 120mm Patria Nemo, turreted, remote-controlled mortar system in the US.

Patria in May 2020 entered the Nemo mortar into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the US Army’s Combat Capabilities Development Command (CCDC) Armaments Centre.

Jussi Järvinen, president of Patria Land Business Unit, said: ‘Kongsberg’s track record of high-end weapon system production is highly regarded, this along with their established manufacturing facilities and US wide supply chain made teaming with Kongsberg a logical choice for Patria.’

He added: ‘Together, we provide the most advanced, protected and mobile 120mm mortar system produced alongside Remote Weapons Stations and Medium Calibre Turrets in the Johnston, PA [Pennsylvania], facility.’
